Macaroni and Cheese:
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) uncooked dried elbow macaroni
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup 2% milk
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheese

Fried Bites:

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.  Meanwhile, melt butter in 2 quart saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour and salt. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly. Slowly whisk in milk, whisking constantly, until sauce is smooth. Bring sauce to a boil; boil 1 minute. Stir in cheese and cooked pasta. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.  Spray 8 or 9 inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon macaroni and cheese into pan; packing it down slightly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until macaroni and cheese is completely cooled.

Place flour, eggs and bread crumbs in three separate shallow bowls. Cut chilled macaroni and cheese into 24 pieces, cutting pan 4x6. Dredge each macaroni and cheese bite as follows: First coat bite lightly with flour, then dip in eggs, then coat with bread crumbs.
