I was introduced to this pimento cheese bread when my husband Brooks and I were in Jacksonville recently. We went to The Players Championship at Sawgrass and watched some golf for a few days, did some shopping, and had a night out without the kids.

Gotta have a date night!

We went shopping and then popped into a place called Moxie! We have passed this restaurant a few times and thought it looked great and on the recommendation of friends who have been there and raved about their drinks, we decided to pop in.

This is what they have!

HOW TO MAKE PIMENTO CHEESE BREAD

FIRST: Slice bread lengthwise and hollow it out. Toast bread at 275F for 5 minutes or until inside is crispy.

SECOND: While bread is toasting, combine pepper jelly and water in a small saucepan. Heat until the jelly is melted and the water is combined. You can also do this in the microwave by mixing the jelly and water in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in intervals until melted and combined.

THIRD: Top each half of the toasted bread with pimento cheese. Spoon the warm jelly mixture over the pimento cheese.

FOURTH: Crush the potato chips in your hand and sprinkle over the jelly. Cut across the loaf to slice into smaller pieces. Or you can just shove the whole thing in your mouth!

For the full recipe and detailed instructions, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

DO YOU HAVE TO TOAST THE BREAD BEFOREHAND?

You don’t have to but toasting the bread not only warms it but the toasty inside keeps the pimento cheese from making the bread soggy.

HOW LONG WILL PIMENTO CHEESE BREAD LAST?

Mine never lasts that long so it’s not an issue but I would say not longer than an hour at room temperature because the pimento cheese contains perishable ingredients.

WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF BREAD TO USE?

I prefer a crusty French bread but I would say any bread with a crispy crust for the texture and one in a shape that is easy to eat with one hand.

IS PIMENTO CHEESE BREAD CONSIDERED HOMEMADE?

You can make all the ingredients from scratch if you are so inclined but I would say that even if you purchase all the ingredients at the store and assemble it at home then it is the very least, semi-homemade, which is still homemade in my eyes!

What an interesting combination of flavors and textures. I love potato chips on sandwiches, so that works for me. Not sure about the jelly but looking forward to trying it. :-)

The jelly is really for the sweet heat but it works really well. I hope you get a chance to try it!
