DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • 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 the cooked pasta and reserve.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the ground sirloin with the grill seasoning, ketchup and yellow mustard.
  • Grab about a tablespoon of meat in your hand and roll it into a small ball. Place the mini meatballs onto a baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil 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 about 1 tablespoon olive oil, and the butter.
  • Cook the red onion with some salt and pepper until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle flour over top and cook for about 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the milk, season with 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 along with the baked meatballs and toss to combine.
  • Pour everything out into a casserole dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheddar and Swiss cheeses.
  • If serving immediately, toss the mac under the broiler until the top is golden brown and bubbly.
  • Top with the chopped tomatoes and pickles, if desired, and serve.
