I really don’t know why I haven’t thought of this before. I love Mac ‘N’ Cheese and I love grilled cheese sandwiches, but for some reason I have never made my favorite Macs into grilled cheeses. I have a feeling that this is going to be a first of many Mac-inspired paninis. I am also thinking I might turn some of my favorite paninis into Mac ‘N’ Cheese (Caprese Mac with a mozzarella cheese sauce sound good to anyone else?). Just the though is making me hungry!
This grilled cheese is so simple to make and is the perfect lunch. You get the delicious flavors of broccoli chicken Mac ‘N’ Cheese with the bonus of crisp, buttery bread. The trick is to cook the broccoli and chicken before hand and then assemble the sandwich to cook at the end. I added some Sriracha to mine to really give it that Mac ‘N’ Cheese feel!
