Grilled Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork {The Man-wich}

The Man-wich is a grilled mac and cheese with pulled pork. A carb lover's sandwich from Pass the Sushi.

#Manfoodweek and the last of my Father’s Day menu for the week is one of those go big or go home type of meals. It can be summed up in two words “fat kid-tacular” as stated and copyrighted by my boyfriend who when asked to help choose the pictures stated, “It doesn’t matter. They are all amazing.” For those of you who don’t know him, that says a lot – because he never ever tells me when he likes or dislikes a meal. Ever.

Sometimes my mind wanders, especially when there is leftover mac and cheese in the fridge. My inner fat kid whispers inside of me the guilt ridden things I could do with all that leftover ooey gooey gluttony. It’s moments like these when I sneak quietly into the kitchen and unleash some magic.

I put dinner on the table without saying a word, knowing that this grilled mac and cheese with pulled pork would be met with wide eyes of shock and horror.

No one in their right mind would want to eat carb on cheese covered carb with some bbq pork shoved in the middle. Because I admit, I had to be out of my own mind to create such a thing. And yet, dinner disappeared in silence and leftovers were consumed within the next few days.

With the promise that only lettuce and broth were on the menu for the rest of the week.The Man-wich is a grilled mac and cheese with pulled pork. A carb lover's sandwich from Pass the Sushi.

I added bacon. My thought was that this was already so bad for me that bacon really wouldn’t add any more build up to my arteries than what I was already getting myself into.

Yeah, this grilled mac and cheese makes Paula Deen and all her sticks of butter looks like a choir of angels.

How weird! I live in Wisconsin and was just looking at a local restaurant's menu (Bluephies) and they have something like this. A grilled cheese with mac and cheese, cheddar, bbq pork and carmelized onions. You have bacon on yours, so I'd say you are one up on them. lol :) Also, I love your site, I came across it from a recipe Pinterest.

My boyfriend just left on a 9 month deployment (our first deployment) & I'm trying to cope by learning to cook delicious food I can make for him when he gets back. This is definitely something I'm going to have to make, he'll be all over this.
