Cook the macaroni according to package directions in salted water.
In a large sauce pan, sautÃ© the onions and garlic in the butter over medium heat until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the paprika and the mustard and season with salt and pepper. Whisk in the 2 tablespoons flour and the milk and stir until starts to thicken slightly, about 4 minutes. Fold in the cheese and add the macaroni. Place in a baking dish and into the fridge to cool and firm up.
Place the remaining flour in a high sided dish, in another dish, add the eggs, and in a third dish place the breadcrumbs.
Heat a pot of vegetable oil to 350 degrees.
Scoop the cooled mac n cheese with a spoon or ice cream scoop into the flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mixture and into the oil.
Do not crowd the pot. Cook in batches. When golden brown and warm through, remove the mac n cheese bites from the oil to a paper towel line plate. Season with additional salt and taste.
