Macaroni and cheese sandwich Wed, 02/27/08 7:59 PM (permalink)
So, I was riding in a taxi tonight watching the news on a video screen (yes, recently the NYC Taxi Commission installed TV screens in some taxi cabs...) and there was a news features on the Watchung Deli in NJ that features sandwich "specials" made up by customers.

Today they featured Ben's Special:

"You start with hot chicken cutlets and barbecue sauce, which gets topped with bacon and cheddar. That's all melted together and stuffed into a roll, which then gets further stuffed with hot homemade macaroni and cheese."

The picture looked mostly like a Mac n Cheese sandwich, which I sure thought was a hi carb treat!!

Does anyone else make this? Or how about a Pasta Sandwich? (Weight Watchcers Special?/there is also a "comments" section on the weblink that accuses Watchung Deli of contributing to the obesity crisis..)

    Sounds like a great sandwich to me -- except for the chicken, barbeue sauce, bacon, cheddar and macaroni and cheese.

      Then it wouldn't be a sandwich - it would be two pieces of bread slapped together.

          You can't ditch the bacon. I'll allow the rest, bad economy-high costs and all, but there is always room for bacon.

            Mazzio's does a macaroni-and-cheese-topped pizza here in OK City, so why not a sandwich? Barbeque chicken and mac-and-cheese on a sandwich sounds like great comfort food to me.

              I'll have to think about this one...ask me again in several years.....at least!

                I would die of carb overload-my blood sugar would be sky high.Besides, all that together sounds especially bad to me...

                  Mac and cheese on a sandwich sounds just as bad to me as potato chips on a sandwich! There are some things that are just so over the edge that I don't even want to think about them.....love mac and cheese, and good potato chips, but on sandwiches? No way.

                  I know. If I haven't tried it, don't knock it.....but I stand by my opinion.

                    I'd go for the mac 'n cheese sandwich anytime! But leave everything else off!

                    As for tater chips, I sometimes add them to pimiento cheese or bologna sandwiches. Is my Roadfood membership revoked? (;-D)

                      Hmmmm....

                      What about a deep dish Mac & Cheese, let it cool, chill in fridge. Slice it into 1" slabs, egg dip and panko bread crumbs, very quick high fry & drain. This would give you a firm slab sandwich worthy with crunch and chew.

                      Now, what you dress the sandwich up with... thats another story. I'm really wondering what that could be.

                          Ann,

                          I double-dog dare us (insulin-in-hand, or other meds), to eat 1/4 of one, and take our blood sugar 2 hrs later (if we're still alive).

                            Dearfolk,
                            Make mine cold, leftover m & c (made with the stinkiest old cheese findable!) cut into a slab and placed on toasted sourdough bread, then garnished with an inordinate amount of chili powder. Now I bet that would be good.
                            Or, as an alternative, livermush with that m & c... a liver mac, as it were. Maybe marbled rye bread for that one. And Texas Pete Hot Sauce instead of chili powder here.

                              I saw that a few times in cab recently too. My back hurts just thinking about eating it. I'll have to take a pass.

                                That sounds decadent and awesome, but I think I'd have to have a salad for dessert...forever! ;-)

                                  this does sound really good. I eat macaroni and cheese sandwiches every now and then. usually cold mac and cheese on bread with some ketchup. But the chicken and bbq sauce is a good mix with it

                                        That is what I was thinking....Carbs wrapped in carbs. Mac and Cheese is so good just as it is.

                                          Lee actually a baked ziti sandwich is good too. I think almost any pasta can be thrown on a roll or bread of some sort and eaten. Haven't you dipped your bread in pasta and had some of it stick to the bread only to eat it anyway? Same concept.

                                            I love to eat mac and cheese with a fork in one hand and a piece of really good, fresh white bread, heavily buttered with real butter in the other. I bet it would be equally good as a sandwich with ice cold applesauce on the side to cut the fat.

                                              How about a hamburger on two slices of roast beef.
                                              Or some bar-b-q between two baby back ribs.

                                                    Form the Mac and Cheese in the shape of a Hot Dog shove a stick in it then dip it in some corn dog batter and fry it up. Mac Dog on a stick. Coming to a carnaval soon. Better than pizza in a cup...Russ

                                                      Maybe you were kidding Russ, but I think you just made yourself a billionaire.

                                                        What about a deep dish Mac & Cheese, let it cool, chill in fridge. Slice it into 1" slabs, egg dip and panko bread crumbs, very quick high fry & drain. This would give you a firm slab sandwich worthy with crunch and chew.

                                                        Now, what you dress the sandwich up with... thats another story. I'm really wondering what that could be.



                                                        My guess would be Yellow Mustard or Marinara Sauce like fried cheese.
