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
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:

I will post this for reader input.
