1 1/2 cups grated cheddar
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
10 Bacon rashers, cooked and chopped finely

Macaroni and cheese is as delicious on it's own but studded with bacon and stuffed with a burger patty...these are incredible. Fried until golden brown, the macaroni has just enough cheese to emulate a bacon cheese burger!  A perfect solution when you can't decide between mac and cheese or a burger, we've got you sorted.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together macaroni noodles, béchamel, cheeses and bacon until combined. Let chill for 30 minutes to set.
  2. Mix together beef mince, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Take about 1-2 tbsp of mixture and flatten into mini patties. Repeat with remaining mix.
  3. Fry each beef patty in a bit of oil in a pan over medium heat until browned
  4. Press macaroni mix into a disk, add one patty and top with additional macaroni. Wrap macaroni tightly to seal.
  5. Coat each disk in flour then egg then breadcrumbs, then repeat egg and breadcrumbs.
  6. Shallow fry each until golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!
