Peppy Pimento Grilled Cheese Recipe @pinch

This is a really snappy grilled cheese sandwich! We love a pimento cheese sandwich, but grilling takes the sandwich up several notches. There is just enough heat in this to make you take notice but not enough to set you on fire. A great grilled sandwich. I confess, I'm a cheesemonger, OK I don't deal in it, but I LOVE IT!!!! All of it! And when I think about good ol' Southern cheese, I think about pimento cheese. So I put my own spicy twist on it, and you guessed it, to the grill I go!!! Remember, girls can grill too!!! I'm making this as a sandwich, but this peppy pimento cheese makes a great spread or appetizer dip as well.
