There are times when only the comforting flavours of a classic cheeseburger will do. But what if you could enjoy those flavours in a delightful pasta dish? Enter Cheeseburger Pasta – a fusion of two beloved favourites that promises to satisfy your cravings in a single bite.

When the urge for American comfort food strikes, nothing hits the spot quite like a juicy cheeseburger. But rather than reaching for the burger buns, I decided to combine the essence of a cheeseburger with the comforting allure of pasta. The result? A mouthwatering dish that captures all the flavours of a bacon cheeseburger in every forkful.

This recipe is a delightful twist on a classic favourite. With its savory blend of beef, bacon, cheese, and even a touch of ketchup, it’s a dish that’s sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Plus, it’s perfect for those busy weeknights when you need a quick and satisfying meal that doesn’t skimp on flavour.

Now, I’ll admit when I first whipped up this Cheeseburger Pasta, I forgot the ketchup. But upon tasting the leftovers, I realized it was missing that iconic tangy kick. So, don’t make the same mistake I did – be sure to add a dollop of ketchup to truly capture the essence of a classic cheeseburger.

So, the next time you’re craving the familiar flavours of a cheeseburger, why not give Cheeseburger Pasta a try? It’s comfort food at its finest, and it’s sure to become a regular in your dinner rotation.

Instructions

  1. Season minced beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat, add oil. Once hot, add the minced beef, flatten like a big patty, then leave it untouched for 6 minutes. Break the patty into randomly sized chunks, then turn it over and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside, reserving oil.
  3. In the same pan, add oil, then cook bacon strips until crispy on both sides. Remove bacon from the pan, let it cool, then chop it into smaller pieces. Set aside.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  5. At the same time, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, salt, and pepper, and stir until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  6. Pour in milk slowly while stirring continuously. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture is smooth and bubbling, about 5 minutes, making sure the milk doesn’t burn.
  7. Add Cheddar cheese and stir until melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
  8. Drain macaroni and fold it into the cheese sauce until coated.
  9. Add the minced beef and a bit of the reserved oil into the cheese sauce-coated macaroni, toss and fold.
  10. Place on a serving platter, drizzle with chopped bacon.
  11. Serve hot and enjoy!

  4. I absolutely love a good cheeseburger…it’s probably my all-time favorite food. Pasta is close behind, though, so the combination here is screaming my name. Great comfort food recipe, Raymund!!
