Mac ‘n’ Cheese Burger Bun

What could be better than biting into two of your favourite foods at the same time?

Imagine this – gooey, melt-y mac n’cheesiness with crunchy exterior,  a delicious patty, fresh tomatoes, crunchy lettuce, some more cheese (is enough ever enough?), a touch of Sriracha or Peri-Peri ketchup… You get our drift. A spin-off of the ramen burger trend, this bun seems like a match made in heaven. Without further ado, let’s get down into the nitty-gritties. You will need –

For the Mac’n’Cheese:

  • ⅔ cup Parmesan, grated
  • 1 cup cheddar Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup medium cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 box macaroni, boiled
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

For making the bun:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup coarse panko bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • Oil for frying

 

In a saucepan over low heat, simmer the heavy cream until reduced by a third (the cream should lightly coat the back of a spoon). Add in the three cheeses and whisk thoroughly. Remove from heat. Place the cooked pasta in a large mixing bowl and pour the cheese sauce over the pasta. Season with salt and pepper, mix until well combined, and let it cool to room temperature.

Line baking tray with buttered parchment paper. Pour the prepared mac ‘n’ cheese onto the lined tray and spread out evenly; cover with another piece of buttered parchment paper. Place flat inside freezer for approximately 1-2 hours or until hard.

In 3 bowls make the following mixtures: Bowl 1 – whisked eggs; Bowl 2 – flour, half of the salt & pepper; Bowl 3 – breadcrumbs and the remaining salt and pepper. Remove the frozen mac’n’cheese as either use a cutter/katori to cut out buns of the required size, or use your hands to break and form the buns as per your requirements. Dip the formed discs in the 3 bowls in order – 1,2 and then 3.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, fry the discs in batches, cooking them for approximately 2 minutes on each side until they become golden brown. Remove and set on a paper towel-lined plate to let the oil drain out.

Foodstree Pro Tip:

You can add a little extra to your mac’n’cheese mixture to take your bun to a new level. We’re thinking some spices – paprika, oregano or parsley? Or if you have a favourite cheese (that melts well) substitute one of the three recommended here!
