After long day of school and work, I just want to lie down with Netflix and eat some comfort food. And if you're like me, there is nothing better than mac n' cheese or a burger. So I combined both to create a mac n' cheeseburger for just you. It's good for your tummy and your soul with a little help from Baking Mischief for the single-serving mac n' cheese.

  • Step 1

    Gather all ingredients. Make sure red meat is defrosted or this will take a lot longer than you want. Bring a small pot to boil and make pasta according to the box. Once cooked set aside and cover to keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Grab the ground beef. If you don't eat a lot, then only use 1/4 pound. Cook ground beef in a skillet and drain grease once cooked. While the meat is cooking, sautée the onions and add it to the meat. Mix in garlic powder, salt, pepper and ketchup.

  • Step 3

    Melt butter over a medium heat stove, whisk in flour until it becomes a thick golden paste (less than one minute). Then whisk in milk slowly until it gets thick and starts bubbling (2 to 5 minutes). Take off stove and mix in the cheese until it melts completely.

I can't resist the mac n' cheeseburger with its ooey, gooey cheese and savory meat. Sometimes I throw on some bacon bits to add spice to my life.
