1. Butter one side of each bread slice. Assemble the sandwiches with the buttered sides of the bread out and a 1/4-inch layer of pimento cheese on the inside with 2 strips of bacon and 1 slice of tomato.
2. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Cook each sandwich until the bread is nicely browned, about 3 minutes a side. Yields 4 sandwiches.
1. In a bowl, mix together cheddar, pepper jack, jalapeños and pimentos. Mix in mayonnaise to desired consistency and add pepper to taste.
