This hearty lobster mac and cheese burger is as insanely tasty as it is impressive looking on a chewy, homemade brioche bun! Rich lobster mac is mixed and formed the night before, then pan seared to patty perfection and topped with more melty cheese!
This is the tasty sandwich you need in your life if you love lobster and mac n cheese!!
After enjoying a rich and flavorful mac and cheese stuffed with perfectly tender bits of lobster, it's a shame to see leftovers of such a perfect dish! You think to yourself that a simple reheat won't do that lobster mac justice!
In comes the idea to combine what I do with my usual mac and cheese bites (adding an egg to the leftovers) to form an amazing patty! This towering sandwich of deliciousness was the result!
- Leftover Lobster Mac & Cheese - Make plenty! You don't have to worry about what to do with the leftovers now! 🙂
- Egg - You'll need an egg to bind the mac together for pan frying the formed patty.
- Cheddar Cheese - Top off some mac n cheese with more cheese! Use your favorite melting cheese, or a complimentary cheese to what was used in your lobster mac.
- Hamburger Buns - Use my kaiser rolls or brioche buns or store bought.
- Butter - Just a pinch, to taste, as the mac you're using should already be seasoned.
- Garlic Salt (optional) - But I love garlic salt!
- Olive Oil - You could also use non stick cooking spray or butter.
🔪 Step-by-Step Instructions
Grab that leftover lobster mac and whip up the mix for this amazing sandwich before storing it in the fridge! Your family will thank you!
- Add egg. In a large bowl combine the leftover lobster mac and cheese with the egg, mix thoroughly.
- Form patty. Using a burger form place leftover lobster mac and cheese mixture in form. (You can also hand shape the burger forms.) You will want about a quart of a pound of the mixture per patty.
- Chill. Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour. This is best if you can refrigerate the formed patties overnight.
- Set aside. When lobster mac and cheese burger patty is chilled to the point where the form holds remove them from refrigerator. Set the patties aside while you toast the buns. *You want to take the chill off just a bit before pan-frying.
- Combine garlic butter. In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 teaspoon of garlic salt. Spread the garlic butter on the inside of the buns.
- Toast the buns. In a large frying pan place buns butter side down over med-high heat. Fry till golden, set aside.
- Fry the lobster mac. In the same frying pan heat olive oil, then place formed lobster mac and cheese down and fry 2 to 3 minutes. Then flip, add cheese and continue cooking until cheese has melted.
- Assemble and serve. Place patty on burger bun, serve and enjoy!
