Carefully transfer the mac from its container on to a chopping board; it should look like a firm block. Slice the mac into 1cm-thick slices, then again into lengths around 1cm wide.

You want to end up with sticks around 1cm square and 7cm long. Put the oil in a deep-sided heavy-bottomed pan and heat to 190°C. Combine the panko breadcrumbs and the Parmesan in a shallow dish.
Take each of your mac sticks and roll it first in the beaten egg and then in the Parmesan breadcrumbs. Deep-fry in small batches until golden, and then drain on kitchen paper.

Sprinkle with salt and serve with your fave dipping sauce.
