I know what y’all are thinking…sandwiches? Really? But these aren’t just any ordinary sandwiches, these are creamy, delicious, macaroni and cheese sandwiches. I know they are easy to find on the internet and you probably don’t need me to tell you how to make them, but would you really have thought about them if I didn’t mention them today? I think not. So, here they are and they go perfect with my Split Green Pea Soup with Crispy Beef Shreds.
My children and the grown ups in the house, all find these irresistible. I love macaroni and cheese and can eat a whole box by myself. I think this comes from my childhood trips to Lindy’s after a long evening of shopping at Brent Cross where we would then indulge in some absolutely delicious, hot and creamy mac and cheese and cauliflower and cheese (another favourite.)
These days I don’t even bother making mac and cheese from scratch, I almost prefer the easy boxed versions! I like to get the Annies brand organic shells and cheese.
Here’s how easy this is:
Grilled Macaroni and Cheese Sandwiches
A box of good quality macaroni and cheese
Slices of good sandwich bread
Slices of good Cheddar Cheese
Make a box of mac and cheese. Put aside.
Slather bread with butter and place buttered side down on a hot griddle or fry pan.
Place a slice of cheese on one piece of bread and a spoon of mac and cheese on top of slice of cheese.
Top with the second slice of bread.
Watching to make sure it browns and not burns, flip the sandwich to brown the other side.
By this time, the cheese slice would have melted and the mac and cheese will be heated through again.
Cut in half, and enjoy!
