Hi Uncle Phaedrus!  Several years ago I frequented a restaurant in Arlington, TX 
called Blaze's Sports Bar.  It was located near the University of Texas Arlington 
Campus on Pecan Street.  They served an appetizer that was fried balls of a grown-up 
version of macaroni and cheese wrapped around lobster meat. It was out of this world! 
I've found several recipes for a baked macaroni and cheese casserole dish with lobster, 
but nothing compares to these fried balls of heaven.  I've attached a picture of the 
appetizer that was taken from their Facebook page.  Anything you could do to help me 
find this recipe would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!  Marylin 

Hello Marylin,

Sorry, I had no success finding a recipe for Blaze's lobster mac & cheese appetizer.

"Blaze's Sports Grill" appears to have only been open for a short time, around 2013 - 2014. It was quite popular, but it apparently closed due to tax problems. I'm finding two addresses for the bar:  593 S Pecan St, Arlington, Texas 76010 and  593 S Spaniola St, Arlington, TX 76001, so maybe it reopened at some point.

In an article about the bar's opening, I found that the chef's name was William Keller, but I could not find a current location for him.

See: The Short Horn

The manager was Josh Pool.

There are recipes on the web for fried "lobster mac & cheese balls" and "lobster mac & cheese bites", but there is no way to tell whether they are similar to Blaze's except to try them. In a recipe like this, there is a lot of variation in the seasonings and the kind of cheese used. Since I never had Blaze's appetizer, I could not recommend a recipe. If you want to try some of those, there are recipes on these sites:
