The Mac and Cheese Burger that Will Make All Your Friends Vegan

Take some crispy salad, toss in some fresh tomatoes, add creamy macaroni and cheese and turn that into a delicious Vegan Mac and Cheese burger. Does it sound like a dream? Well luckily it isn’t.

I was first introduced to this amazing burger a couple of years ago at a pub in London when I was a vegetarian. I’ve thought about it many times since and dreamt about finding it in a restaurant in Stockholm.

But it wasn’t until a few months ago that I got the brilliant idea to make the burger myself. And I think I can thank my plant-based lifestyle for that because since going vegan I’ve learnt that good plant-based food doesn’t always simply cross your path – you need to roll up your sleeves and do some restaurant research or make it yourself. And so I did.

When I veganised this Mac and Cheese Burger I didn’t just make it cruelty-free, I also made it even more delicious than the original burger that I had in London. And if you’re a chilli cheese lover I definitely think you will agree. This part is of course optional but if you add some minced jalapeños you’ll make the Mac and Cheese burger into a Chilli Cheese Burger. Yes, this is still not a dream!

So if you want to make your friends curious of your plant-based lifestyle at your next spring barbecue party, make this delicious Mac and Cheese Burger.


Ingredients for two burgers:
– 2 cups boiled macaroni
– 2 and 1/2 cups grated vegan cheese
– 2 tablespoon minced yellow onion
– 2 tablespoon minced jalapeño
– Salt and pepper
– Dairy-free butter for frying

To add with the burgers:
– Hamburger bread
– Salad
– Sliced tomatoes
– Ketchup
– Egg-free mayonnaise or your favourite sauce

Heat the macaroni, cheese and jalapeños in a pot until all the ingredients have melted together. Season with salt and pepper.

Let it cool and then form the mixture into burgers. Put the burgers on a plate and place them in the fridge.

When the burgers are cold and firm, fry them in dairy-free butter or oil in a frying pan.

Eat with bread (or switch the bread for salad), sliced tomatoes, ketchup, egg-free mayonnaise or other optional ingredients.

Have a great barbecue season!
