Grilled Pimento Cheese & Bacon with Pepper Jelly
Last night’s grilled cheese dinner was no different. I wanted to try something new, and my husband wanted simple. We both used sourdough bread, thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, and pepper jelly, but where he wanted deli sliced colby-jack, I wanted scoops of good ole fashioned pimento cheese. The end result…ooey, gooey, hang-your-head-over-your-plate goodness.

After one bite of this grilled cheese, it was all I thought about the rest of the afternoon. Pimento cheese is a favorite for this southern gal, and I love using it as a basis for a grilled cheese. It's so creamy and melts nicely. You get a bit more sweet and spicy from the pepper jelly. Bacon adds a smoky finish, and we all know everything is better with bacon! The Test Kitchen
