All-American Mac 'n' Cheese Burger

Serves 4 servings

Originally aired

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup cooked elbow pasta
  • 1/2 pound ground chuck
  • 1/2 pound ground sirloin
  • A few dashes hot sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup chopped plus 4 slices American or yellow cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 4 kaiser rolls, toasted
PREPARATION

In a large bowl, mix together the cooked pasta, ground chuck, ground sirloin, hot sauce, salt, pepper, mustard and the chopped cheese. Score the meat into 4 equal portions and form patties.

Preheat a large, nonstick skillet with some EVOO. Add the patties to the skillet and cook about 3-4 minutes per side. A minute before you take the burgers off, place 1 slice of cheese on top of each burger. Tent the skillet with a piece of tin foil to melt the cheese.

While the burgers are cooking, mix the ketchup, relish, and sour cream in a small bowl.

To assemble the burgers, place a patty on each of the rolls, top with some chopped onion, shredded lettuce and special sauce.
