Baked Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese

Hey everyone! This baked cheeseburger mac and cheese will let you have your very own Hamburger Helper in no time! Bring on the goodness of a classic mac and cheese and a juicy burger with this fusion recipe!

Not long after having arrived to Canada I fell absolutely in love with a classic cheeseburger. I love the juicy patties and the sharp taste of cheddar cheese oozing onto the patty. And as you've seen from plenty of my mac and cheese recipes, I love many variations of the classic, but the golden version never goes out of style. So why not combine my two favourite foods into one? That's exactly what I did in this cheeseburger mac and cheese recipe, and it's surprisingly easy to do! Just watch the video to find out!

This mac and cheese recipe uses two secret ingredients that I swear by for my burgers. All you need to do is add Worcestershire sauce and a bit of green tabasco. That totally transforms the tomato sauce that'll be used for this mac and cheese. You gotta see it for yourself to believe it.

I've never actually had a Hamburger Helper myself but they seem to be all the rage. If you love those or love burgers and mac and cheese as much as I do, then you definitely need to try this cheeseburger mac and cheese for dinner tonight. Enjoy!
