Most mac ‘n’ cheese grilled cheese is made by putting mac ‘n’ cheese between two pieces of bread. Mine swaps this and makes a bread out of macaroni and cheese for the ultimate mac ‘n’ cheese grilled cheese!

Mac 'n' Cheese Grilled Cheese

The bread on this grilled cheese sandwich is actually mac ‘n’ cheese.  What you are looking at above is two slices of mac ‘n’ cheese “bread” grilled with more cheese in-between.  Disgusting?  Maybe.  Every child’s dream sandwich?  Oh, yeah!

It took some experimentation to come up with a viable mac ‘n’ cheese “bread” that would hold its shape.  The key, I found, is to food processes cooked mac ‘n’ cheese and to mix in eggs to provide a glue.  Then, I spread the mixture thinly in mini loaf pans to make my “bread slices”; each mini loaf is one slice of “bread”.  When you grill the “bread” with the cheese, the part of the “bread” touching the cheese starts to break down a bit and you can actually see mac ‘n’ cheese mixed with the melted cheese.  However, the outside of the “bread” can still be hand-held.

I used sliced cheddar cheese in my mac ‘n’ cheese sandwich, but any melty cheese would work well.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked mac ‘n’ cheese refrigerated overnight
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 slices of cheese your choice
  • ½ tablespoon butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Food process mac ‘n’ cheese with eggs until it looks like a thick, goopy batter.
  • Spread batter evenly in two mini loaf pans. The batter should only be along the bottoms of the loaf pans.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the mac ‘n’ cheese appears solid.
  • Keep in the loaf pans until the mac ‘n’ cheese “bread” is completely cool.
  • Carefully remove “bread” from the loaf pans.
  • Assemble the sandwich by placing the cheese between the two slices of “bread”.
  • Melt butter on a skillet at medium-low heat.
  • Place sandwich on the skillet and let sit for 3-5 minutes or until the bottom starts to brown (sneak a peek using a spatula).
  • Carefully flip the sandwich and cover with a lid or foil until the cheese melts (another 3-5 minutes).
  • Serve hot.

  1. I’ve made grilled mac and cheese before using regular bred and stuffed with cheese and leftover mac and cheese. Mac and cheese as the bread blows my mind.

  2. Amysays:

    You’re so creative!! I’ve been reading your blog posts for the past 3 years (even though I don’t comment on them, I do read every one!) because of your unique twists on recipes and courage to consistently step outside the box. Turning mac ‘n cheese into bread? Nothing short of genius!! Already pinned! :)
