Smashburger launches mac and cheese burger nationwide: 'Taste innovation'

Smashburger is releasing a S'mac & Cheese Burger for a limited time

Diners won’t have to choose between macaroni and cheese and burgers at Smashburger. 

The fast-casual burger chain has launched a new S'mac & Cheese Burger.

Smashburger’s S'mac & Cheese Burger is made with certified angus beef patties that are topped with slices of American cheese. The sandwich is finished with a layer of mac and cheese, which is pressed between a toasted bun.

The new S'mac & Cheese Burger is a limited-time menu item that can be ordered at participating Smashburger locations nationwide, the company announced in a recent press release.

"For this dish, we're using our proprietary smashing technique to smash the mac and cheese on the grill to create a crispy and flavorful baked cheese layer before adding it to the burger," Bachmann continued. 

"It's something we've never seen done before and know our guests will love it as much as we do!"

Smashburger says customers can also request that a layer of S'mac & Cheese be added to other burger and sandwich menu items it serves, including the brand’s Classic Smash Burger and Scorchin' Chicken Sandwich.
