Aunt Jean’s Pimento Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

When I was growin’ up, I always thought it was a real treat when my Momma would put a Pimento Cheese and Bacon Sandwich in my school lunchbox. She and my Aunt Jean were always exchangin’ recipes and this one of Aunt Jean’s Pimento Cheese And Bacon Sandwich was my all-time favorite. I’ve even added some freshly chopped jalapeño pepper to the recipe to kick it up a bit! Dadgum!
