Number of Servings:


  1. 1 blocks - (8 OZ) Cracker Barrel Sharp Yellow Cheddar shredded
  2. 1 blocks - (8 OZ) Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp White or Yellow Cheddar Cheese shredded
  3. 1 - (7 Ounce) jar of chopped Pimentos
  4. 1/2 teaspoons - Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  5. 1/2 teaspoons - garlic powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoons - cayenne pepper
  7. 3/4 cups - Hellman's Mayo
  8. 2 - French Baguettes, good variety for exceptional taste and texture ( I like Panera Breads or Atlanta B thinly sliced (on a diagonal/biased to get fancy)
  9. 1 - package bacon cooked and crumbled
  10. 2 - Roma Tomatoes chopped(optional)



Heat oven to 400 Degrees

Mix both cheeses, mayo, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and pimentos in a mixer to thoroughly incorporate.

Then put into container, sealed tightly and put into fridge for 2 hours at least, so all of the flavors can combine.

Once cheese has had a chance to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, Cut baguettes thinly and on a biased (angled).

Toast baguette slices on EACH side for 3 or 4 minutes, or until desired crunchiness.

Top each slice with Pimento Cheese mixture and sprinkle with bacon crumbles.

Put back into oven for 3 or 4 more minutes, and then top with diced tomatoes.

Serve and Enjoy!!!
