Ingredients

mac and cheese

  • 1/2 lbs macaroni cooked
  • 1/2-1 shallot
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 C half n half
  • 6 oz shredded cheese blend I use sharp cheddar, cloth bound cheddar and gruyere
  • Salt and White pepper to taste
  • 3 oz extra shredded cheese

Caramelized onions and pepper

  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large pablano pepper

Burger

  • 3 lbs ground chuck
  • Seasoned salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • 6 slices pepper jack cheese or another cheese you like for melting on top
  • brioche buns

Instructions

Mac and cheese

  • in a saucepan on med/low heat melt the butter and add the shallots - cook until fragrent
  • add the flour and stir - cooking until the roux is a light tan
  • then add the half n half (I just make my own with milk and cream since I always have both on hand) and stir until thick
  • take off the heat and add the cheese - stir until melted
  • then take out some of the sauce - about 1/2-2/3rds cup - to top your burgers with later
  • add the noodles and stir
  • add the extra cheese (optional - for cheese chunks) and spread out in the bottom of a pan - I made a double batch in the video but you could use a 9x13 pan for this size batch - refrigerate until firm - 2 hours

Caramelized onion and pepper

  • over medium heat add some oil to a non stick pan
  • slice the onion and pepper and add to the oil
  • stirring occasionally cook until the onions are a dark golden color - about 15 mins

Burger

  • while the onion is cooking season your ground chuck with pepper and onion powder (or whatever you like to use) and mix it - go as heavy or light as you prefer
  • Cut the mac and cheese into circles - I cut mine 3 1/2 inches
  • press out the meat into a flat circle, around 4 1/2 inches around and about 1/2 inch thick
  • place a mac and cheese round on top - cover with another round of meat and seal the edges (you can pull away any excess)
  • sprinkles salt on both sides of patties
  • place in a hot skillet with some oil in it and cook for about 5 mins on the first side, flip and cook about 5 mins on the second side (I like to use a lid simply to make sure the mac and cheese is getting heated inside
  • about the last min add slices of cheese (I used pepper jack) to the burger, add an ice cube to the pan for moisture and put a lid on it.
  • add to a toasted brioche bun, top with the onions and extra cheese sauce and the top bun! ENJOY!
