Bourbon Bacon Grilled Cheese

Most things are better with a few pieces of bacon. This melt in your mouth dish is a must have for your next cookout or football party! The Bacon Jam adds a sweet and smoky flavor complimented by the caramel bite from the bourbon.


8 slices crusty bread (such as peasant or sourdough)
1/4 – 1/2 cup Bourbon Bacon Jam
1 cup Farmhouse Pimento Spread
8 slices bacon, cooked
2-4 Tablespoons butter, unsalted


Place bread slices on a clean work surface. Generously spread the Bourbon Bacon Jam over four slices of bread and Farmhouse Pimento spread over the remaining 4 slices. Top Pimento spread with 2 slices of cooked bacon. Place the slices covered in jam on top of the slices covered with Pimento spread to create 4 sandwiches. In a sauté pan over medium heat, add 1-2 Tablespoons of butter. Once melted add the sandwiches. Sauté sandwiches over medium heat until golden brown. Remove from pan, add additional 1-2 Tablespoons of butter and flip sandwiches to brown the other side until cheese has melted. A panini maker can also be used. Cut sandwiches in half and serve.
