Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a food processor, blend together the garlic, paprika, hot sauce, cayenne, 1 teaspoon salt and some black pepper. Then add the mayonnaise, Cheddar and smoked Cheddar, and pulse until combined. Put the mixture in a bowl and fold in the cooked pasta and the roasted red bell pepper. Season with additional salt and pepper.

To assemble the sandwich, heat a nonstick griddle to about 300 degrees F or medium-high. Butter the bread generously and spread about 1/4 cup of the mac n cheese mix on the non-buttered side of the bread. Then add the sliced tomato, bacon and mild Cheddar, and top with another slice of bread. Grill on both sides until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more sandwiches.

Cook's Note

We make our own mayonnaise. If you choose to do so, replace the mayo in the recipe with 1 egg and 1 cup of vegetable or grape seed oil, just not olive oil. If you are making your mayo from scratch (good for you!) you can add the egg with your spices and garlic. While the processor is running, slowly drizzle in the oil. If you prefer a less smoky flavor, you can use all Cheddar or even use any shredded cheese available like Colby or pepper Jack.
