After tasting this sandwich in a tiny 'lunch-only' restaurant in my hometown (population 903), I had to try to imitate it. My husband loves this sandwich!

Directions

  1. Place bacon into a skillet over medium heat, and cook until crisp. Remove, and drain on paper towels.
  2. Place the cream cheese in a bowl, and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, garlic powder, pimentos, onion, jalapeno, and cayenne pepper until well blended.
  3. Spread two bread slices with the cream cheese mixture. Top each slice with avocado and bacon, divided evenly. Top with two remaining bread slices to make a sandwich. Cut each sandwich in half to serve.

I submitted this recipe, and the serving size varies, depending on how thick you like to spread your pimento cheese and what size sliced bread you use. The restaurant used jalapeno bread, but I serve it on honey seven-grain.

Awesome, Awesome Awesome recipe!! My husband and I loved this stuff! The only changes I made were to sub onion powder for the grated onion, and I used the packaged real bacon bits instead of frying bacon. I also added a but more mayo - maybe 2 T more just for personal taste. Overall, fantastic pimento cheese.. Oh, and don't forget the avocado, Never would've thought it belonged on a pimento cheese sandwich but it REALLY goes well. Thanks for a great recipe..
