Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwiches
The technique and the ingredients you choose make the difference between a good grilled cheese sandwich and a great grilled cheese sandwich.
Why This Recipe Works
In our Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwiches recipe, the right ingredients coupled with the proper technique gave us perfect sandwiches. Buttering the bread—not the pan—gave our sandwiches the most even browning. Cooking the sandwiches over medium-low heat allowed the cheese to melt evenly and the bread to brown deeply. We added mayonnaise, jarred pimentos, minced onions, hot pepper sauce, and sliced tomatoes for an authentic Southern flavor. For a crisp crust, we pressed the Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwiches with a cake pan to mimic a panini press.
