Ultimate Mac ‘n’ Cheeze Burger

Servings: Serves 2


1 pack
Heck! Ultimate Vegan Burgers
Lettuce, to serve
Ketchup, to serve

For the bacon bits

50g (1.7oz)
Coconut Flakes/Chips

For the Mac 'n' Cheeze Buns

300ml (10 fl oz)
A pinch of
150g (5oz)
100g (3.5 oz)
Oil, for frying



Start by preparing the mac ‘n’ cheeze buns. Heat the plant milk over medium heat until it steams, then add in the nutritional yeast, sea salt, turmeric, tomato paste and vegan cheeze. Stir occasionally until the cheeze is fully melted and all ingredients combined to a cheeze sauce.


In the meantime, prepare your macaroni according to packaging instructions.


Add the cooked macaroni into the cheeze sauce and set aside to cool for 15 minutes.


Once the mac ‘n’ cheeze is cold enough to handle, form the 4 buns with your hands. Place them on a lined tray and put them in the freezer for 20 mintues.


In the meantime, prepare your bacon bits. Coat the coconut chips in the rest of the ingredients, and gently fry on a low-medium heat until the chips become crispy, sticky and almost dry. Stay nearby as they can easily burn. Set them aside to cool and break them up with your fingers, if needed.


Prepare your Heck! Ultimate Vegan Burgers according to packaging instructions.


Remove the burger buns from the freezer and heat a little oil in a non-stick pan. Whisk up the gram flour and plant milk in a small bowl and coat every bun generously in the mix. Cover with breadcrumbs on all sides and fry in the hot oil until golden. Be very gentle when turning the buns in the pan.


Slice your gherkins, and assemble your burger with the mac ‘n’ cheeze buns, lettuce, ketchup and gherkins.

     The problem is, where the Heck do I get Heck’s burgers? Certainly not around here. I actually dislike bloggers who use ingredients that aren’t available for everyone.

    • Hi Shirley, thanks for your comment. These particular Heck burgers are available in Asda and Tesco, as well as via Heck’s website directly. For this recipe, you could even substitute the Heck Ultimate Burger for another burger!
