Pimento Cheese B.L.T. Sandwich ~ I gotta tell you before moving to Texas I never had a pimento cheese anything. Crazy, right? I didn’t even know such a thing existed and that, well … it was a thing. I first tried this mysterious, yet intriguing, combination of flavors at a party. It was a simply cheese-y goodness spread between two slices of good ole’ white bread and I needed to know more. Over time, I began to tinker in the kitchen with a homemade recipe of my own and I even went out of my way to ask an expert for her recipe but she kindly declined to share. Somethings are sacred, I guess. Once in a while I crave a hearty sandwich for dinner and the first thing that popped into my mind was that darn pimento cheese. I couldn’t just make that for dinner, I needed something more and with a stockpile of the season’s gorgeous heirloom tomatoes staring at me a Pimento Cheese, Bacon, Lettuce, & Tomato Sandwich was needed. What is it about a B.L.T. that I adore so much? It’s satisfying, fresh and perfect for a summer dinner.
