Marvelous Mac n Cheese Burgers!

Yum
Oh my gosh!
I so went there!
Mac n Cheese on a Burger!!!
Grilled Burgers and Comfort Food?
YES!!!!
This has become my new burger favorite.  Just look at the cheesiness!  I also added a sauce inspired by Guy Fieri and the combo is MARVELOUS!

Ingredients:
2 lbs ground round
salt and pepper to taste
1 package of whole wheat mini slider buns
1 package of mac n cheese, cooked and prepared according to directions
2 Tbsp butter
Secret Sauce Ingredients:
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup mayo
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp yellow mustard
1/8 tsp sea salt
2 turns of black pepper

In a bowl, make the secret sauce by combining all the secret sauce ingredients.  Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.

Make your hamburger patties and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  That's all that is needed.  Grill to desired doneness.

Meanwhile make sure your mac n cheese is cooked and prepared.  Heat a large skillet.  Add butter.  Take 1/4 cup of mac n cheese and place heaping mounds onto your hot fry pan.  Fry until the edges turn brown and you can lift with a spatula.  Takes about 3-4 minutes.  You will have disks of mac n cheese.  It is ok if some of it falls away from the original disk.  Just add it to the burger.

Assemble by placing cooked burger patty onto the bottom bun.  Top with the "fried" mac n cheese.  Add the secret sauce to the inside of the top bun and place the top bun on top of the mac n cheese.




Simply MARVELOUS!  Add Copy Cat Portillo's Chopped Salad and your meal is complete.
