  • -To make the mac sauce, just mix everything together in a bowl until throughly incorporated.
  • Sear the patties in a hot pan. Heat should be at medium high heat before the pork touches the pan. You want to create a crust before flipping. The patties should only be flipped once. Once a nice crust has formed on the first side of the patty, give it a flip, and top each patty with 2 slices american cheese. Continue searing for another 30 seconds and then turn the heat off. Allow the cheese to melt with the residual heat, no need to cover.
  • While the patties are cooking toast the sesame seed buns in a 350 degree oven until golden brown and delicious. Form the Pig Macs like so...
  •  Bottom bun,1 oz mac sauce,2 pork patties with melted american, diced white onion, shaved iceberg lettuce, another 1 oz of mac sauce, and top bun.
Enjoy with your favorite side and then get ready for a nap!
