Pimiento Grilled Cheese | www.tasteandtellblog.com
What better way to finish off National Grilled Cheese Month than with the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich?

I’ll admit – I have a thing for pimiento cheese. Growing up, the only time we had it was the jarred kind that we’d put on celery sticks and serve at Thanksgiving. (And we still have it that way!!) But in the last few years, I’ve truly grown to love the real deal – with the cheese, the mayo, the pimientos… Heaven. But if you put it between 2 slices of bread and grill it up so that it is melting and gooey and dripping out of your sandwich? It just can’t be beat.

To make things a little easier, I like to make mine with roasted red peppers instead of pimientos. They are similar in flavor, in my opinion, and I always have roasted red peppers on hand. But pimientos could certainly be substituted.

Happy Grilled Cheese Month! Make sure you grab a napkin!
