Don’t underestimate that smiley little fish. Crushed up as a coating for these glorious air fryer mac and cheese bites, Goldfish® Frank’s RedHot® Crackers make this appetizer the stuff heat-lovers dream of.
PREPARE macaroni and cheese according to package directions, stirring in cream cheese and 1 tablespoon of the Buffalo Wings Sauce when adding the cheese pouch. Spray cups of 24-count mini muffin tin with no stick cooking spray. Divide mac and cheese mixture evenly among mini muffin cups. Cover with plastic wrap. Freeze 2 hours or overnight.
WHISK egg, water and remaining 1 tablespoon Buffalo Wings Sauce in a shallow dish. Place Goldfish crumbs in separate shallow dish. Remove mac and cheese from freezer. Run a knife around edges of bites to separate from pan. Dip mac and cheese bites into egg mixture, then roll in Goldfish crumbs to coat.
SPRAY air fryer basket with no stick cooking spray. Preheat air fryer on 350°F for 3 minutes. Arrange bites in single layer in air fryer basket, working in batches if needed. Spray bites lightly with no stick cooking spray.
AIR FRY 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Repeat with remaining bites. Serve with additional Buffalo Wings Sauce for dipping, if desired.
