Sous Vide Stuffed Mac and Cheese Burgers


Here is a easy way to kick up your Cheeseburgers this Summer, stuffing them with Mac and Cheese! It really isn't that difficult, especially when you combine cooking them with Sous Vide to guarantee they are cooked perfectly!


Ingredients:


3 pounds of Ground Beef

One pound of Bacon

Box of Macaroni

1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic

2 cups of Half and Half (Cream and Milk)

4-6 cups of Cheese (I used Cheddar and Jack)

1 Tablespoon of Corn Starch

4 Tablespoons of Butter

Salt and Pepper

Sliced Cheese of your choice to top you Burgers

One sweet Onions (If you want sauteed Onions)


Saute Bacon. Save a few full slices to top Burgers, and chop the other pieces to add to the Mac and Cheese. Heat half a stick of Butter is Pan until melted. Add minced Garlic. Add Corn Starch mixed with a few Tablespoons of Water to thicken up. Once warm slowly add Cheese and stir until Cheese in fully melted. Add Bacon pieces and stir in until evenly blended.



Spread Mac and Cheese in a single layer on Cookie Sheet. Use Parchment Paper to prevent sticking. Freeze of refrigerate until cool and firm. Once firmed up cup out round pieces using a circular cookie cutter or manually with a knife.


Prepare and Stuff Burgers with Mac and Cheese. Season with Salt and Pepper. Place in Freeze bags and Sous Vide cook at 135 degrees for 1-2 hours.


Half hour before burgers will be ready slice Onion and Saute in the remaining Bacon Fat. Save till later.



Remove Burgers from bags and dry off completely with paper towels. Sear burgers either in a frying pan or on the Grill for a minute or two on each side. Add cheese slices on top to melt.



Top with Bacon and Cheese Sauce. Enjoy!
