We love a good burger at my house, so, when I discovered the 12 Bloggers theme for June was burgers, I knew I wanted to come up with something different and delicious.

My daughter had suggested one with mac n’ cheese on it, since she’d eaten one at a popular burger place in town. I headed to their website to check it out. Although interesting, and no doubt delicious, it just wasn’t the uniqueness I was looking for.

What I did find, after looking over their menu, was a burger using grilled cheese sandwiches for the bun. Amazing! I quickly set to work making my own version. {By the way, if you’re ever in Tucson, AZ be sure to stop by Lindy’s on 4thThey’ve got great food and the OMFG burger challenge that was featured on Man vs. Food a few years back!}

The result was this amazingly delicious, not to mention huge, burger that even my rapidly growing 13-year-old son was unable to finish. I was barely able to eat half, really wanted to press on, but I didn’t.
