  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spread a few tablespoons of the pimento cheese spread on a slice of bread. Top with a second slice, spread the top of the sandwich with butter, and place in the heated skillet, butter-side down. Spread butter on what is now the top slice of bread, and cook until the sandwich is golden brown on both sides, flipping halfway, for a total of 3-4 minutes.

Cheddar and white bread and Blue plate mayo is classic but feel free to change it up. Sometimes we make with a combination of cheese (pepper jack for a little kick. And Mom always adds the relish her twist too the original Lisa spread.
