  • 4 slices sturdy white bread approximately 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 cup Pimento Cheese Spread
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Divide the pimento cheese spread evenly between two slices of bread and spread into an even layer. Top the cheese with the remaining bread slices and, using a 3 inch biscuit cutter, cut a hole in the center of each sandwich. Set aside.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium high heat and melt the butter to coat the pan. Place the two sandwiches and the bread rounds in the pan.
  3. Cook the sandwiches for 1 minute, then crack an egg into the middle of each sandwich being careful not to break the yolk.  Continue cooking until the egg starts to set, approximately 2 more minutes.
  4. Carefully, flip each sandwich (and sandwich round over) and continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
  5. Transfer the sandwiched to a plate or serving platter. Serve immediately with the mini round grilled cheese sandwiches.
Recipe Notes

Pimento cheese can be made up to 3 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
