  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • butter

Instructions

  • Heat up griddle or skillet on the stove top to a medium-low heat.
  • Butter one side of each slice of bread.
  • Place one slice of bread in skillet, butter side down.  Spoon pimento cheese on top.  Let cook until cheese begins to melt and bottom of bread turns golden brown.

Notes

Grilled cheese sandwiches cook best on slowly on low heat.  This lets the cheese melt without over toasting the bread.
