While at Trader Joe’s the other day, I found these Mac and Cheese bites in the freezer section. I instantly thought, “I have to air fry these babies.”

Mac and cheese bites are a fun side to any sandwich and are an easy appetizer for dinner. Pick them up in the freezer section of your local grocery store.

After a bit of experimentation, we found that the flatter sort of mac & cheese bites (like those pictured here) cooked in around 8 minutes, whereas the larger spherical shaped bites (like the ones I found at Trader Joe’s) took a few minutes longer to cook.

Recipe Notes

You can use air fryer parchment liners for this recipe if you choose. Mac and cheese bites shouldn't stick to the basket, but the liners will help with clean up. Especially if one of the bites loses some filling while heating.
