Gluten-Free Grilled Mac and Cheese Sandwiches
Oh man, these things are so awesome. They are basically my gourmet grilled cheese kicked up 3,000 notches.
These are gluten-free (can be made regular) grilled cheese with MAC and CHEESE on the inside! No, for reals.
GLUTEN-FREE GRILLED CHEESE MAC AND CHEESE SANDWICHES (NOM!)
Ingredients (Makes 2 Sandwiches)
- 4 Slices of a Favorite Bread (Our version is gluten-free, we used the Udi’s brand White Sandwich Bread found at Trader Joe’s)
- 1 tbsp of butter, melted
- 1 tsp of garlic power
- 1/8 tsp of salt
- 1/8 tsp of pepper
- Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 tsp of white wine (any variety)
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 4 slices of cheddar cheese
- 1 box of rice macaroni and cheese (gluten-free), prepared
- 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
This is how to two sandwiches in the oven at 400F. You set them out on a nonstick cookie sheet, then place another cookie sheet on top to "press" the sandwich. Make sure to have your mac and cheese ready before starting the below.
Mix the butter, wine, salt, pepper, cayenne, and mustard together in a ramekin. Brush on one side of your bread, cover in shredded parmesan and then place face down on the cookie sheet for each sandwich you're making.
Then, top with one slice cheddar and a thin layer of macaroni and cheese. Top again with another slice of cheddar, followed by the other piece of bread. Brush this top piece of bread with the butter mixture and some shredded parmesan cheese.
Now, place a cookie sheet directly on top of the one holding the sandwiches and press down gently. Place the stacked cookie sheets in the oven (at 400F) and cook for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown. You can make as many sandwiches as will fit on the tray using this easy technique too!
Happy gooey noodle adventures!
