Mac & Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich – Recipe! Yes I Did!

Print Friendly

Most Americans have a version of macaroni and cheese they prepare, even if it comes from a little blue box.  What ever Mac & Cheese you fancy, there are usually leftovers.  Reheating them is an option or you can get a little creative and put your Mac & Cheese between two slices of bread for a decadent sandwich. For extra fun and flavor, add a slice of cheese and some pepperoncinis for heat and wow…now we’re talking!

Ingredients

Leftover Mac & Cheese – My Habanero Mac & Cheese is pretty great!

6-12 slices of sandwich bread, I prefer something with grains

4-6 slices Havarti cheese

1/2 cup pepperoncinis

Dijon mustard

butter

 

To Prepare:

1.  Remove your Mac & Cheese from the refrigerator and make sure it is still edible (no science experiment, if you know what I mean).

8.  Cover the skillet with a lid and let it cook for at least 4 minutes.  Check the bread to make sure it is not getting too brown.  Flip the sandwich over and continue to cook until the other side is golden brown, about 4 more minutes.
