Grilled Mac n Cheese

Okay I have a confession to make…in the fall I crave carbs. I love comfort food! Now that autumn is definitely in the air I have something very special to share with you. This grilled mac n cheese is full of carbs and probably not as healthy as it should be. Don’t feel guilty, eat some fruit later in the day. Ha! This is a great kid friendly lunch. It also could be served with sliced apples and a bowl of soup for dinner.

Grilled Mac n Cheese

Grilled-mac-n-cheeseYep, you read that right. Start with a box of mac n cheese, The kind with the packet of creamy cheese works best for this. (hey I like to make it easy and yummy!) Cook up the mac n cheese as directed, set aside. You could also make your mac n cheese from scratch. Sometimes I do this as well. Depends on time and budget in my house; both ways work for this easy recipe.

Butter 2 slices of bread (I used split top wheat), place one butter side down with a slice of cheese. Spread mac on top of cheese slice and place other slice on top. Flip (carefully). Place on plate. Cut and serve!

This would be wonderful served with tomato soup and a glass of cold milk on a brisk day. Total comfort food!

Why not treat your kids with this lunch while they are on fall break from school. I bet they would love it!

What is your favorite fall lunch to serve?

    I would have never thought of using mac and cheese for a grilled cheese sandwich! Now that I have seen it and read about it, I think I need to make one! I mean right now!

    A wee bit squeamish!

    That looks delicious! I just had dinner, but I am hungry again. I’m going to have to try it soon, and of course, end my day with some fruits. 🙂
