Leftover Sweet Potato Casserole, Brie and Bacon Grilled Cheese.
How trashy can we get?
That is the question.
Very trashy is the answer. Who puts potatoes in their grilled cheese sandwich?
Well, me. Apparently.
This is the sort of thing that happens to me when I’m left to my own devices with a giant pan of sweet potato casserole in my fridge. So this is my solution.
Also, it’s like ten million times better if your sweet potatoes have marshmallows or a crunchy, crumbly topping included. Mine had both.
The good news is we’re eating whole grain bread. I mean, right?
Leftover Sweet Potato Casserole, Brie and Bacon Grilled Cheese
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened for spreading
- 4 slices whole grain bread
- 1/3 cup
- leftover sweet potato casserole
- 4 ounces brie cheese
- 4 slices cooked bacon
- Heat a large skillet or grilled over medium-low heat.
- To assemble the sandwiches, spread the outsides of each slices with softened butter. On the insides, add a slice or two of brie, the bacon slices, a big spoonful of the sweet potatoes and some more cheese. Top it off with the remaining bread, buttered sides up. Cook the sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Eat!

I appreciate you so much!
What are you doing with your leftovers? We are eating ours again tonight, same old style as yesterday. Because, you know, I want to feel like a stuffed sausage again.

This looks like a tempting killer carb overload. If I weren’t so full I would eat this today. Thankfully we don’t have a ton of leftovers!
Confession: Totally did not make sweet potatoes last night. The hubs doesn’t…like…them… I don’t get it.
Confession #2: I’m making sweet potato casserole today, just so I can make this grilled cheese. Literally struggling at what to say right now because I can only think about this sandwich being in my face.
Is there a better thing than carb+carb? I mean, I love the combination of pasta and potatoes… So there’s really nothing awkward about sweet potato grilled cheese. It’s simply delicious (or that’s at least what I imagine it to be).
Have a great weekend,
Whoa! Mind blown! Yummmmmmmm! That is not trashy….it is beautiful! Just need some brie, and I can try! MMMM! Thanks for sharing!
YUM!!! What a great idea and simply amazing!! Looks beautiful!
i did this combo today too! I did my toasties with kale and edam in the mix. it tastes amazing but your picture have sum that up perfectly!
I’m in Canada and we had our Thanksgiving last month… BUT the way I see it, there’s ALWAYS room for more Sweet Potato Casserole and then grilled cheese!
Can’t wait to make this!
I say the trashier the better!! This sandwich is awesome!
I wish I had some leftovers to create awesome grilled cheeses like this
Can’t wait to give this a try! This is a great twist on the classic day after Thanksgiving sandwich.
Soooooo what you’re saying to me is that it’s basically health food. I mean whole grain bread, vegetables, dairy and protein. SOLD!
Dying. I may just have to whip up some sweet potato casserole just to make this sandwich.
I’m all for the trashed up food today. And I still feel like a sausage–and I haven’t eaten breakfast yet!!! That’s a bad sign.
Ummm can I just say that I made that sweet potato casserole yesterday and it was freaking amazing?!? My whole family loved it. I had to double the recipe and I made two changes: I omitted the flaked coconut and doubled the oats (because I HATE coconut) and I used full-fat coconut milk because that’s what I had on hand. I didn’t get to take any leftovers home, which I think is totally unfair considering I made it. I totally want to make more but I’m out of marshmallows – gah!! Oh well, they’re going on my next grocery shopping list.
This definately isn’t trashy; it’s amazing!
I can’t really look at food right now, but here I am, wanting a bite of that grilled cheese sandwich. As if I didn’t stuff my face yesterday. Great idea for using leftover sweet potatoes, for sure.
Grilled cheese are a vehicle for virtually anything in my books. There is no such thing as too trashy!
I always look forward to your post-thanksgiving post! I’ll like put off looking at it just to let the excitement build haha.
I love it when you get trashy! This sandwich sounds amazing.
I for one have totally stuffed a sandwich with leftover sweet potatoes before! Who cares if it’s big and messy? It’s still GLORIOUS. :)
I am doing same olds as yesterday too! I like ’em just the way they were, but I am sure in a few days I will want to trash them up or throw them in the trash, but in the name of food I shall do the former!
I am sad. I AM SO SAD. We had Thanksgiving at a restaurant last night (which was the first time EVER, so it was weird and cool at the same time) BUT that means I didn’t get any leftovers. None. Zip. And their gravy was weird. Ugh. What I wouldn’t do for a leftover plate of potatoes, green bean casserole and stuffing (covered in gravy of course) …. MAN!
Yum. That’s pretty much all there is to say — just yum. :)
I cannot get over how much I love this sandwich already. Get into mah belly, sammich.
Look who is alllllllll over this Buzzfeed…
PS- Like my feedly feed, buzzfeed is a massive time suck
This grilled cheese is the shiz! WHOA AWESOME!
Sweet potatoes and brie on thick slices with those big seeds on the crust – that’s a prefect sandwich right there!
That sounds an absolutely incredible grilled cheese! Perfect sandwich for leftovers, great job :)

I’m so sad no sweet potato casserole made it through the night! Looks delish, maybe another time. ;-)
This is the best way of using up leftovers :) I LOVE grilled cheese!!
Oh wow oh wow this looks amazing! Potato and bread definitely go together right?! I love a double carb!
Putting sweet potatoes in a sandwich is a wonderful idea. I have done several recipes with left over candied sweets. This gives me such good ideas.

I may not have put sweet potatoes in a sandwich (yet) but I used leftovers for pizza and it was the BOMB! :)
Unconventional is fun and this looks SO tasty. You little devil.
You’re sandwich looks quite good…glad I’m not the only one who comes up with interesting combinations with my leftovers! :)
