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.
I mean … dang … those tomatoes.
Make the pimento cheese and add as much as you like to the sammies, eat the rest.

Open one pretzel roll and spread 2 Tablespoons of pimento cheese spread onto the bottom of the inside of the roll. Next, add a piece or tow of lettuce and top with a slice or two of tomato. Then break bacon strips into halves and add a couple of the halves over the top of the tomato. Finish the sandwich by adding another 2 Tablespoons of the pimento cheese spread to the inside of the top of the sandwich, then close sandwich.
