Grilled Mac 'n' Cheese Sammies

Grilled Cheese sandwich? Yes please!
Mac N Cheese? Yes please!
What an awesome combination to pass over your palette. Doesn't help the waistline though ... but eh who cares if it tastes good right?


Hello! I am Allana and my little piece of blog heaven is A Husband and A Dog. AHAAD can't be subjected to just one category - I talk about our mishaps in life, food, my lack of fashion/hair/makeup style, and of course my husband and our Corgi, Lincoln. Hope you stop by and introduce yourself because I just love meeting new people.

Ok Ok Ok back to the yummy goodness. With this recipe you can't really go wrong with the ingredients. Use leftovers if you have them. My favorite additions to the sandwich have been bacon (BACON!) and ham. Both give it that salty compliment to the rich and creamy cheese(s).

First up - make your favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. I like to use a variety of cheeses and typically I use cheese ends from the deli counter at the grocery store. Ask what they have and they are always happy to sell them to you. My favorties are: Provolone, Lacey Swiss, Mozzarella, and I get yellow American to add color. If you wanted to you could use Velveeta - always a hit in my book because I am no food snob. Make your Mac N Cheese on the thick and creamy side rather than milky. You want it to have a nice velvety texture when you are done - and CHEESY.  Add in your "extras" like bacon or ham. Be creative and use whatever comes to mind. Oh and don't forget to add crushed buttery crackers to the top for extra texture.

Spread the goodness out on to a cookie sheet that has been "greased" by using a light layer of your favorite light cooking spray. Next up, once it is thoroughly cooled cut into even squares. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Now is the time to assemble your sandwich. Choose a Challah or Sourdough bread. Butter just one side of each slice. Place your MnC square between the non-buttered sides. To make it extra gooey and oh-so-delish add a slice of your favorite cheese (or leftover cheese end) along with it. (YUM!) It will also help the MnC square from "falling apart" while cooking.

Place on a non-greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until you are satisfied with the amount of gooeyness.

Done! Serve with a piping hot bowl of tomato soup. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed this gluttonous recipe. If you try it please let me know what cheeses you like, what you would change, and if you liked it.
