Cheesy Mac and Rib Melt
8 cups prepared macaroni
3 tablespoons Tillamook
4 yellow onions, cut in
2 cups barbecue sauce
4 cups prepared pulled pork
16 slices buttermilk bread
24 slices Tillamook Sharp
¾ cup ( 6 ounces) Tillamook
¾ cup mayonnaise
Prepare the spread: Beat butter and mayonnaise
until well mixed.
Spread warm macaroni and cheese on a sheet
pan in a ¾-inch-thick layer. When cool, cut into
squares slightly smaller than the bread slices.
In a sauté pan, melt 3 tablespoons butter over
medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often,
until caramelized, about 25 minutes. Do not brown.
In a saucepan, heat barbecue sauce. Add pork
and simmer for 5 minutes.
Preheat a griddle to 350°F.
Butter one side of bread slices with spread. On the
other side of 8 slices, lay 1 slice of cheese, 1 square
of macaroni and cheese, then another slice of
cheese. Add pork and onions. Top with a cheese
slice and another slice of bread, buttered side out.
Slowly cook all sandwiches on the griddle until
golden brown on both sides. To cook faster,
place a bacon press on top of the sandwiches.
Makes 8 servings.
Note: If the griddle heat is too high it will burn
the bread. If the bread browns before the inside
becomes hot, place sandwiches in the oven at
450°F to ;nish cooking.
