The Big Mac & Cheese is just like a Big Mac except that it swaps out sesame seed buns for deep fried macaroni and cheese buns that are breaded in Flamin' Hot Cheetos!

Servings 1


  • 2 quarts oil for frying
  • 1 bag (8 1/2 ounces) Flamin' Hot Cheetos
  • 8 ounces pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups plus 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2/3 pound ground beef
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • lettuce shredded
  • onion diced
  • Big Mac Sauce


  • Cook pasta according to the directions on the package.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons flour flour. Add 1 1/2 cups milk and reduce heat to low. Stir in cheese slowly until melted and pour over cooked pasta.
  • Transfer macaroni and cheese to mini springform pans and chill in a refrigerator for 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour or until macaroni and cheese discs can be removed from the springform pans without falling apart.
  • Heat oil in deep fryer or heavy skillet to 375°F.
  • Set up a dredging station with three bowls — flour in the first one, 3 beaten eggs and 1/2 cup milk in the second one and crushed Flamin' Hot Cheetos in the third one.
  • Coat each macaroni and cheese disc in flour, submerge in egg wash and cover in crushed Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Repeat this step a second time if necessary.
  • Fry macaroni and cheese discs for 5 minutes or until cooked through and then cool on paper towels.
  • Separate ground beef into two equal sized portions, season with salt and pepper and grill until they reach your desired level of doneness.
  • Assemble your Big Mac & Cheese by taking one macaroni and cheese bun and topping it with Big Mac Sauce, shredded lettuce, diced onion, a slice of American cheese and one of your burger patties and then repeat the same process finishing off the burger with the third and final macaroni and cheese bun.
