We at Thrillist believe that most things in life are made better by beer, including macaroni and cheese. So it goes without saying that our mouths started watering when we found Twisted's recipe for garlic, bacon, and beer mac & cheese balls, an easy snack idea that takes pretty much all our favorite things (cheddar, Parmesan, beer, bacon, and garlic galore) and packs them all up in one tiny sphere of deep fried bliss.
You don’t need a deep fryer to get crispy potato chips. We made these chips right in the microwave! I bought one of those fancy microwave chip makers, but quickly realized a plate and parchment paper does the trick much better. The silicone tray tray still gets used so I can layer and get two plates out at once.
