The hefty, meaty slices of thick cut bacon hold up well in this club-style sandwich. Use a store-bought pimiento cheese or make your own using freshly grated cheddar cheese and your favorite mayonnaise; any leftover pimiento cheese is delicious spooned on top of a bowl of grits or mixed into macaroni-and-cheese.  Serve this hearty sandwich alongside crispy homemade sweet potato chips to make the perfect fall weekend meal.
