Indulge with an irresistible Pimento Grilled Cheese, loaded with bacon, homemade pickles, and jalapenos. This creamy and crispy sandwich comes together quickly and disappears just as fast.

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 2-4 1x




  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Have everything prepared and ready to go for cooking, this recipe comes together quickly.
  2. Place a cast iron skillet over the coals once preheated. Add the bacon right away, allowing it to cook as the skillet warms up. Flip every couple of minutes until the bacon is cooked to your desired crispness. Remove the bacon when ready and set it on a paper plate lined pine a paper towel.
  3. Add 2 slices of bread to the skillet, which will be the toasted tops to the sandwich. They will crisp up quickly, so check them after about 2 minutes, using a spatula. You can toast both sides if desired.
  4. Using the remaining 2 slices, divide up the pimento cheese and spread it on each slice. Add the bacon and pickles as desired. Place each slice in the skillet carefully to toast the bread. Add the toasted top slices to each sandwich, and gently press down.
  5. If you have a lid or a sandwich press, this helps to melt the cheese quickly.
  6. Check the bottom of the sandwiches after about 2 minutes, and remove when toasted to your preference.
  7. Remove from the skillet, slice, and serve!


  • This sandwich can be prepared on any griddle or flattop as well. If you don’t have a grill, you can easily make this on the stove.
