This grilled cheese sandwich is stuffed with creamy macaroni and cheese for double the gooey cheesy deliciousness.
Grilled Macaroni and Cheese Sandwich
- 4 slices of sandwich bread
- 2 tbsp butter spread
- 4 slices of cheddar cheese
For Macaroni cheese
- 1 cup elbow macaroni
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
With the recipe, you make the mac and cheese ahead of time so it has time to cool before using in the sandwiches
Cook pasta in salted water until cooked
Put the pasta into a strainer. Shake out excess water.
Stir in the butter and the cheddar cheese. Do a taste test and salt and pepper to suit your taste.
To make the sandwiches
Spread about 1/2 tbsp butter on one side of each slice of bread.
Place a slice of cheese on top of each un-buttered side of bread. Spread half of the macaroni cheese on one piece of bread and the other half on another piece of bread. Place remaining slices of bread on top, to form two sandwiches. Place frying pan on stove and turn to medium heat. Once hot, place both sandwiches in the frying pan, cooking the buttered sides until golden and toasty and the center of the sandwiches are melty.
