It's hard to go wrong with Mac and Cheese, so we decided to pick the most gluttonous version we could find, Deep-Fried Mac and Cheese, by Ms. Paula Deen. (Well, actually, there's an even more gluttonous version of this recipe, which includes a strip of bacon wrapped around each serving, but we thought that was going a bit too far.)
In the words of Food Network commenter, Kodi from Verona, WI, "THIS IS GREAT AND SO EASY TO MAKE IF NO ONE LIKES THIS THEY MUST BE FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY. THANKS PAULA." So, if you don't like this recipe, you're un-American!
Note: This recipe is made in two parts. Paula's Lady's Cheesy Mac must be prepared and refrigerated over night, and then deep fried the next day. So, if you're too lazy to fry it on Sunday, you still have regular Mac and Cheese already made. For the deep frying portion, you'll need a dutch oven. No, we're not talking about that kind of dutch oven, although you'll have ample opportunity for that after consuming all of that Super Bowl fare.
