  1. Scoop 1 cup of the macaroni and cheese into a 6 well muffin tin lined with large liners. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Remove the chilled macaroni and cheese from the fridge. Using a tablespoon measure or melon balled, scoop out the center of each macaroni cake, reserving the macaroni from the middle.
  3. Place 2 tablespoons of cheese in the center of each macaroni cake then cover with the reserved macaroni, using your hands to press together and form into a tightly formed ball.
  4. Once all of the macaroni cakes have been formed, bread each one. Dip each one into the flour, the eggs then the breadcrumbs, assuring each one is thoroughly coated.
  5. Once all of the cakes have been breaded, place them in the fridge to chill. While the cakes are chilling add the oil to a large pot set over medium-high heat.
  6. Once the oil is hot, about 5-7 minutes, add each cake one at a time and allow to fry for 3-4 minutes or until and even golden brown.
  7. Place the finished macaroni cakes on a serving dish then garnish with additional bacon crusted and parsley. Enjoy Bacon Crusted Mac and Cheese Lava Cake!
