Mac And Cheese Bites Air Fryer

Last Christmas, we bought some delicious mac and cheese bites from M&S.

After 13 years living away from England Marks & Spencer’s has been my biggest addiction now that I am back home.

And of course, our local town has an M&S food, and we can head there whenever we like.

If you know M&S well, then you will know that their food is the best and even when they make frozen food, it’s the best frozen food ever!

Well, I bought several boxes of these yummy mac and cheese balls with the plan to cook them from frozen in the air fryer and tell you how amazing they are.

But I have just been so busy with other recipes, that my scruffy piece of paper with notes on about cooking mac and cheese bites in the air fryer had been forgotten about until now.

But today is finally the day, and OMG if you love mac and cheese then mac and cheese bites in the air fryer are perfect for you.

Can You Air Fry Mac And Cheese Bites?

Yes, you can air fry mac and cheese bites and they are delicious. I love how crispy the coating is on a mac and cheese bite compared to baking them in the oven.

Plus, I love that they don’t taste overly greasy compared to mac and cheese bites cooked in the deep fat fryer.

Can You Air Fry Frozen Mac And Cheese Bites?

Yes, you can cook frozen mac and cheese bites in the air fryer, and they are delicious. We have tried many different varieties now and have not found one that we don’t like.

The only caution when cooking air fryer frozen mac and cheese bites is that you want to keep an eye on the time and temp as there is nothing worse than dried centre.

What Is The Best Frozen Mac And Cheese Bites?

Of course, we all have our opinion of the best and the worst frozen mac and cheese bites. Though these are my personal favourites:

Marks & Spencer’s Mac n Cheese Bites – my personal favourite and the ones we are cooking in the air fryer for you today.

Trader Joe’s Mac & Cheese Bites – Really good quality product and never goes dry in the air fryer.

Stouffer’s Mac And Cheese Bites – Another good choice for the air fryer and worth stocking up on for the freezer.

And of course, the best of them all, is to make your own homemade mac and cheese bites from air fryer mac and cheese leftovers and leftover breading from air fryer chicken schnitzel.

Can Macaroni And Cheese Be Frozen?

Yes, it sure can. You can freeze a small or a large leftover portion of mac and cheese. Just make sure it is fully cool before you freeze it.

You can also make ahead leftover macaroni and cheese into mac and cheese balls and then save them in the freezer for when you want a quick treat from your leftovers.
