Recipe: Mac & Cheese Stuffed Grilled Cheese

I love macaroni and cheese - like it's part of my food addiction - it's just my #1 food. So how did I make it even cheesier?

Stuffed it in a grilled cheese sandwich - that's how! It's National Grilled Cheese Month and I like to try something new every year. Previous years I've done:

- Grilled Cheese Bar
- Caprese Grilled Cheese
- Bacon & Apple Grilled Cheese
- Taco Dip Grilled Cheese
- Philly Cheese Grilled Cheese
- Grilled Cheesecake Donut Grilled Cheese

So this year - I doubled down on the cheese and I think you can handle it!

This was a super easy recipe too - you start with Sara Lee Artesano Bread - it's literally MADE for grilled cheese - it's thick and hearty but soft and delish! Then you layer on a great cheddar (I like sharp white cheddar) and pre-made macaroni & cheese (I used Bob Evans from the refrigerated section). A few minutes in the pan and dinner is ready!

The sandwich is so yummy - and you don't need a lot of cheese or macaroni to make it delicious! It's very rich and cheesy - but you can also add things you like - bacon, etc. I added some chips in the middle for a fun crunch! You can surprise people with that one! ;-)
