Recipe Ingredients for Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese

1 pound noodles
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup yellow mustard
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 Minced onions
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of ground pepper
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups skim milk
1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese

Recipe Directions for Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Place a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil. Add pasta to boiling water and cook just shy of al dente, according to package directions. Drain cooked pasta and reserve. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with the grill seasoning, ketchup and yellow mustard. Grab about a tablespoon of meat in your hand and roll it into a small bowl. Place the mini meatballs into a baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of EVOO and bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Turn off the oven and turn on the broiler. While the mini meatballs are in the oven, heat a large saucepot over medium high-heat with one turn of the pan of EVOO, about one tablespoon and the butter. Add minced onion. Sprinkle flour over top and cook for about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, season with the salt and pepper, and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and whisk in 1 cup of each cheese. Add the drained pasta to the cheese sauce. Toss to combine. Pour everything out in a casserole dish, top with meatballs and sprinkle with the remaining cheddar and swiss cheese. If serving immediately, toss the mac and cheese under the broiler until the top is golden brown and bubbly.
