“I came up with this recipe after craving both cheeseburgers and mac & cheese. This really tastes like McDonald's cheeseburgers! Don't leave out the garnishes, ketchup or mustard though- the ingredients sounds weird, but taste great together.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef in a sprayed pan over medium-high heat. When meat is no longer pink, drain and then add salt, pepper, garlic powder & Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until beef is cooked to your liking. I like making it kind of crispy, so I cook longer. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. In a large saucepan, cook your pasta according to package directions. Al dente is best as you don't want the mac & cheese mushy. Once pasta is done, drain but do not rinse.
  3. Return the warm pasta to the saucepan, and immediately add the butter, yogurt, and cheese. Stir until everything is well-melted, then fold in the reserved ground beef.
  4. Put pasta in bowls, and top with sesame seeds, green onions, tomatoes, and pickles. Drizzle with generous amount of ketchup & yellow mustard.
