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.
