Mr. Hawthorne Makes Grilled Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches.

Mr. Hawthorne makes a wonderful pimiento cheese spread -
 just grated cheddar cheese,
a drained jar of pimentos, and mayo.
(I don't like as much mayo in mine as he puts in his.)
Sometimes he puts in green olives for a little amplification.
Mr. Hawthorne was inspired to make a grilled pimiento cheese sandwich
 after seeing the one pictured in Our State magazine.
 Our State's July issue offered  
100 Foods You Must Eat In North Carolina's 100 Counties.
 For Rutherford County, in the southwestern part of the state,
Smith's Drugs of Forest City was featured
 with their grilled pimento cheese sandwich.
Talk about rich!
Buttery, cheesy goodness.
 Sweet, tangy pimientos.
 Needs more pimientos in the pic.
All this needed was some pickle slices on top,
maybe a sprinkling of sliced green olives,
and a side of salty potato chips.
 Oh, Ticky.
Them's whole wheat breads bein' buttered and grilled.

oooh Rosie, ya gotta try added some grated onion to your pimento cheese--not too much, just a hint for some sweet oniony tang. When I'm feeling particularly frisky, I'll add some pepper jack cheese to it.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pimento Cheese and that picture on the cover of Our State Magazine just made me want to get right in the car and drive to the place where they sell those sandwiches. My family is from the western part of the state and they cooked their Pimento Cheese. I have only started making it with the shredded cheese and mayo just recently. Love it both ways.

My wife got this from her brother ;~) so it might be some Florida Cracker food:
Make it in a bowl, but rub bowl with garlic and get it all in there(how much you like); then add your other ingredients....enjoy!

Ah Rosie, you see, I have faith that the evil white bread will never pass your lips again.
