Pimiento cheese and bacon crostini
Could there be anything better than bacon and cheese? We don't think so.
Pimiento cheese is pretty delicious as it is but slather it on a slice of bread, top it with bacon crumbles and it becomes simply irresistible. We've lightened this version up by using Greek yogurt so you can eat even more.
