The Truck Food Cookbook
These sandwiches are about texture. About the slight chew of the macaroni noodles that lurk beneath shatteringly crisp slices of toast. These sandwiches, inspired by The Grilled Cheese Truck, are about goofball creativity, too—about adding cheese to cheese in an act of righteous excess. Optional additional fillings served at The Grilled Cheese Truck include caramelized onions and pulled pork.

  • Step 1

    Heat the oil on a griddle or in a large skillet set over medium-high heat.

  • Step 2

    Top all the slices of Texas toast with a slice of cheese. Spoon 1/2 cup macaroni and cheese onto 2 of the slices of bread and top each with one of the remaining 2 slices, cheese side down. Place the sandwiches on the griddle and let cook until the bread is nicely toasted, 2 minutes. Carefully flip the sandwiches and cook on the second side until the macaroni and cheese is warmed through and the Texas toast is golden, 2 minutes more. Reduce the heat if the toast is browning too quickly. To serve, cut the sandwiches in half on the diagonal.

    Note : Texas toast is just white bread cut in double-thick slices. It’s great for toasting.
