Fried Macaroni Recipe

Years ago, my grandfather used to make a dish that he called "Fried Macaroni". All I can remember is that he used macaroni, wheat germ, and sugar. And it was fried, at least at the end of the recipe. Does anyone know of a recipe that sounds like this at all?

You can bake the mac and cheese in a flat pan. When cool, cut into squares, dip each square in beaten egg, then bread crumbs and the deep fry. That is how I do it. Hope that helps. Good luck.

My mom used to make something similiar, I think.

After the macaroni was cooked, she put it in a frying pan with some oil, breadcrumbs and onions (and I guess whatever else you'd like) and fry it lightly till the breadcrumbs coated the macaroni.

It's really good!

The way my mother did Fried Macaroni is; cook macaroni drain then put in a skillet and after macaroni is hot pour some beaten egg over it and cook till egg is done. I still do left over macaroni this way.

My mom used to do this: Fry some chopped onion until transparent in a good bit of butter. Toss in leftover elbow macaroni and then some breadcrumbs, salt & pepper. (Should be enough butter to sink in to the breadcrumbs.) Fry until heated well. Very good!
