- 2 cups Southern Pimento Cheese Spread

- Preheat oven to 425°. Arrange bacon slices on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Cook bacon for 15-22 minutes depending on thickness. Drain cooked bacon on a plate layered with paper towel.
- Melt 3 tbps of butter in a nonstick frying pan. Once butter has melted, arrange 4 of the bread sliced into the melted butter. Cook over medium heat.
- While the bottom bread slices are toasting in the butter, top each slice with ½ cup of Southern Pimento Cheese Spread. Arrange 2 slices of bacon on top of each sandwich.
- With the remaining 3 tbsp softened butter, lightly butter the remaining 4 slices of bread. Arrange these bread slices (butter side up) on top of the cooking sandwich halves.
- Once the bottoms of the sandwiches are toasted , carefully flip the sandwiches with a flat spatula so the other side of the sandwich can be toasted. Once both sides of the sandwich have reached a golden toasted color, they are ready to serve.
