What’s on your Super Bowl watch party menu? Chips and dip? Pizza and wings? How about mac ‘n’ cheese? If all of the above, sure, you can pick up all of your snacks from the grocery store and have the pizza and wings delivered to your door. But for the latter, we highly recommend making Martha Stewart‘s Fried Macaroni-and-Cheese Bites — an appetizer she appropriately describes as “little squares of heaven.”
“What’s on your menu lineup for the big game? Make way for little squares of heaven,” Stewart writes on Instagram. “These fried mac and cheese squares are sure to be MVP at any party.”

To make Stewart’s Fried Macaroni-and-Cheese Bites, you’ll need a handful of cooking tools, including a large pot to cook your macaroni and your cheesy sauce, a 9-by-13-inch baking dish to bake your macaroni mixture in the oven, a cutting board to cut your baked mac ‘n’ cheese into 1-inch squares, a shallow dish to dip your mac ‘n’ cheese bites into your whisked eggs and panko mixture, and a large nonstick skillet to fry your mac ‘n’ cheese bites, and a wire rack to drain and cool your bites.
“Follow a two-step breading process, using panko instead of regular breadcrumbs for a crust that’s crisp yet light,” Stewart advises.
The recipe is easy enough to follow, making the appetizer easy enough to make. But the best part of Stewart’s Fried Macaroni-and-Cheese Bites recipe? It can be made up to three days ahead, leaving you with more time to prep for your Super Bowl party.
“You can (and should) prepare the stovetop macaroni and cheese a few days ahead, since it will firm up in the refrigerator, for easier cutting,” Stewart says.
