The Ultimate Grilled Bacon & Pimento Cheese Sandwich with Candied Jalapenos

The Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich


For the past couple of weeks I have hinted about this fabulous grilled Bacon and Pimento Cheese Sandwich.  Just before Christmas a friend insisted on driving 30 miles to have a sandwich which she said, “would change my life!”  I was game and since we headed to a cute little historic town with plenty of shopping- I knew it would be a great day no matter.  She was right, the sandwich was amazing!   I was sure my son would love it too, and  I really wanted him to try it when he was home for Christmas.  However, I also realized  he would never drive 30 miles for a sandwich {the shopping was no incentive here either …}  So I worked on a recipe for Pimento Cheese and Candied Jalapenos in order to  recreate the experience for him and for you.   {Yes, he loved it more than me!}  Note, both the pimento cheese and candied jalapenos are great staples to keep in the frig for all kinds of sandwiches and entertaining.

Here is the combination:  Good molasses or honey-wheat bread, homemade pimento cheese, bacon, and candied jalapenos.  To finish it off – apricot jam!
