Ingredients

  • 4 slices Texas toast white bread
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 1 box prepared macaroni and cheese, boxed or scratch made
  • 4 slices applewood bacon cooked
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup parmesan

Directions

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and pour macaroni and cheese into it. Use a spatula to spread evenly and place in your Kenmore fridge until chilled (about 2 hours).
Butter one side of the white bread and place the American cheese on the non-buttered side.
Then cut a piece of the chilled mac and cheese that is slightly smaller to fit onto bread.
Top with 2 slices of bacon (I break mine into smaller pieces) then butter remaining slice and place butter side up on sandwich.
Heat a cast iron skillet to medium high heat and add 2-3 Tbsp. of parmesan cheese. Place the sandwich on top of the cheese and cook for 2 minutes per side. Before flipping the sandwich, add another handful of parmesan cheese to the skillet then flip the sandwich on top.
Cook for 1 more minute then finish in a 450 degree oven for 5-6 minutes or until cheese is completely melted and gooey. Yield: 4 Servings
