Learn How it Works...
1 cup chopped cooked bacon
1 cup (4 ounces) Land O Lakes® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup diced pimientos
1 (3/4-inch-thick) slice Land O Lakes® Deli American, shredded
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 slices Texas toast bread
8 teaspoons Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil
Combine all Pimento Cheese ingredients in bowl; mix until well combined.
Spread 1 side of each bread slice with 1 teaspoon Butter with Canola Oil. Spread 1/2 cup pimento cheese mixture onto each unbuttered side of 4 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered-side up.
Heat 12-inch skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Place sandwiches into skillet. Cook, turning once, 6-8 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
Place assembled sandwich in air fryer basket. Cook at 360°F for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Flip the sandwich and continue cooking another 5-7 minutes or until bread is crisped and golden and cheese is melted. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may be able to cook more than one sandwich at a time.
If you have thin sliced Deli American fresh from the deli, finely chop it for the pimento mixture.
Just because you’re pressed for time doesn’t mean you can’t eat well. Weather it is lunch or dinner, one of these hearty hot sandwiches is sure to hit the spot.
