The other thing I love about this recipe, is that it only takes about an hour to make, and it’s pretty inexpensive. I mean, really, the bulk of the recipe is potatoes, carrots and noodles– you can’t get dinner much cheaper than that, especially one that’s satisfying!
I was inspired to make these mac n’ cheese balls originally because years ago, when I was eating just a vegetarian diet, I would eat the frozen mac and cheese balls from Trader Joe’s pretty much constantly. I mean, hey, I was also in college at the time, so that was years before I ate anything not-frozen. Anyways, those TJ’s frozen mac and cheese balls quickly became one of the first things I started to miss when I decided to eat strictly plant-based. So, what am I gonna do, sit around and never have my favorite foods? No!
And the fact that they really don’t take too much longer to make than the old ones took just to bake, ain’t hurtin’ no one.
I have the whole recipe, including how to make the cheese sauce, on the next page for ya– have a great dinner tonight!
