Grilled Mac ‘n’ Cheese Sandwiches

  • boxed macaroni and cheese
  • mayo (or butter)
  • shredded cheddar cheese, American cheese, and/or mozzarella

  2. Schmear… mayo onto one side of Texas toast. Just enough to lightly coat it.
  3. Pre-heat electric skillet.
  4. After the mac is ready, add cooked bacon to the mixture.
  5. Place the mayo side of the bread onto the skillet, add cheese, and then about a 1/4 cup of mac.
  6. Top mac with another slice of cheese and add other slices of bread.
  7. Flip until each side is it’s golden brown, and the cheese has melted.
  8. Enjoy!
