    rpgaymer's Note:

    A western version of the Mac & Cheeseburger pasta that I posted earlier. This tastes like a Western Whopper from Burger King!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Over medium-high heat, fry the bacon until the fat renders and the bacon becomes crispy (transforming into bacon bits), about 8-10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, set aside and let drain on a paper towel.
    2. 2
      Using the bacon fat still in the pan, brown the ground beef. 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.
    3. 3
      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.
    4. 4
      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.
    5. 5
      Put pasta in bowls, and top with sesame seeds, bacon, fried onions, tomatoes, and pickles. Drizzle with a generous amount BBQ sauce.

      I haven't had a fast food burger in eons, but my kids told me it tasted just like the Burger King burger. It was really tasty. I used minced garlic and didn't have any sesame seeds otherwise made as directed. Made for Rookie Recipe tag Fall 2013.
