step-by-step directions
  • For the Burgers: In a large bowl, combine the chicken with the grated zucchini, onion, carrot, breadcrumbs, egg, and a generous pinch of salt and freshly cracked pepper. Fold together until combine. With dampened hands, form into patties, and arrange on a parchment lined sheet tray.
  • On a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat, griddle the patties for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  • To Assemble: Halve the brioche rolls and lightly toast. Assemble burger. Place a chicken patty on the bottom bun and top with a large scoop of mac and cheese.
  • For the Mac and Cheese: Cook the macaroni according to package directions in salted water. Drain.
  • In a large sauce pan, sauté the onions and garlic in the butter over medium heat until soft, about 4 minutes.  Add the paprika and the mustard and season with salt and pepper. Whisk in the 2 tablespoons flour and the milk and stir until starts to thicken slightly, about 4 minutes. Fold in the cheese and add the macaroni. Stir together and set aside.
