So I made a batch of gouda and sharp cheddar cheese pimiento spread a couple of days ago. I usually just use sharp cheddar but after trying Sam’s club version of this spread I know I needed to add gouda this time. Using sharp kind of cheese would also give you a deeper and more complex flavor.


You can only have so much of pimiento on crackers and after making a big batch, I needed to find creative ways to use it. As it turns out making grilled cheese is just one of the endless possibilities.

To make, spread your cheese pimiento on some whole wheat bread or whatever kind you prefer, layer a couple of turkey bacon slices that has been browned then top with the other piece of bread. Heat a non stick skillet over medium heat and add a pat of butter, when it melts place your sandwich and let it brown. Then turn over and add another pat of butter. Cook until golden brown and cheese has melted.

Serve immediately.
