Ingredients:

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

    DIRECTIONS :

    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!!!
