Pimento Cheese Spread

I made a big batch of super-tasty roasted tomato soup the other day. I think it’s pretty much law that you must have a grilled cheese sandwich with a bowl of tomato soup. But, if you know me, I had to do things just a bit different. So, I decided to make pimento cheese. I’ve made pimento cheese grilled cheese sandwiches before, and I loved them, so to change things up I made pimento cheese bread sticks. I just took a great creamy pimento cheese mixture and spread it over toasted ciabatta bread. Under the broiler for a bit and then… fantasticness!
