Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month with  a gourmet grilled cheese recipe made with Chipotle and bacon pimento cheese sandwiched between two grilled slices of  our sponsor Sara Lee®’s  Artesano™ Bread.

Pimento cheese spread made with bacon and Chipotle peppers is spread between slices of thick bread to create a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich recipe perfect for grown up tastes.

A grilled cheese sandwich is a favorite comfort food for many people and April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month. It’s a great excuse to make a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich recipe. The two most important parts of a truly delicious grilled cheese sandwich are the bread and the cheese and I have the best of both in this grilled cheese sandwich recipe.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches. The bread is free of artificial flavors, colors and high fructose corn syrup. Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread is nice and soft like homemade bread, but it’s found in the grocery bread aisle of Walmart and most local grocery stores. Grab a loaf or two for an entire month of grilled cheese sandwich making.

Pimento Cheese

For the perfect bread, you also need the perfect cheese.  I used my favorite pimento cheese recipe with spicy Chipotle peppers and salty bacon to create an unbelievable grilled cheese sandwich.  Just slather the pimento cheese between two slices of Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread and fry in a little butter.

Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grill until both sides of the bread are a rich, golden brown and the pimento cheese is warm and oozing from the sides of the bread. Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread is strong and hearty enough to stay together even with a lot of gooey warm pimento cheese spread. Look at that gorgeous crust!
