Open-Faced Pimento Cheese BLT's
Put a new twist on the ole BLT!
2 T bottled diced pimentos - drained
1 T grated peeled shallots - minced (I just white onion)
2 T mayonnaise
1 tsp cider vinegar
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 C sharp cheddar cheese - grated
1/3 C Parmesan cheese - grated
4 sliced sourdough bread - toasted
4 thick (center-cut) bacon slices - cooked and halved
Arugula or Spinach leaves
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.
Spread 3 T cheese mixture on each bread slice.
Top each with 2 - 3 tomato slices.
Top each sandwich with 2 bacon halves and 1/4 Arugula or Spinach.
Perfect for a hot summer day and perfect for those sun ripened tomatoes! I broiled the bacon in the oven for ease an quick clean-up :0)
