We've done what everyone has been thinking. A gorgeous fatty beef patty, stuffed with our best Mac and cheese, topped with sliced cheese, and homemade fluffy onion rings... because food is for enjoying!


Start by making the Mac and cheese. Boil the pasta in salted water, and whilst this is happening, add flour and butter to a saucepan, and cook until bubbling and slightly nutty in smell. To this, slowly add your milk whilst continuously whisking. To this béchamel, add the cheeses, followed by seasonings. Add the pasta and mix well, before allowing to completely chill in the fridge.

Once completely chilled, make small balls of Mac and cheese, place on a tray and allow to harden slightly in the freezer. Once hardened, wrap the balls in beef to form a patty, and leave aside to cook later.

For the onion rings, mix all the dry ingredients together, before adding the wet ingredients, starting with the beer/sparkling water. Slice your onion into rings, and once your deep fryer has reached 170°c, quickly dunk your onion into some plain flour, then into the batter and straight into the oil. Cook until golden - about 3-5 minutes.

In a non-stick pan, sear the burger on one side, flip carefully and add the cheese slices. Allow to steam and melt, before assembling this dream of a burger.

Start by saucing up the brioche buns, before adding pickles and the burger, followed by some onion rings. All that's left to do is enjoy!
