  • Summary

    Pimento cheese is a Southern classic, but the combination of spicy, smoky pimento cheese — spiked with bacon and the adobo that comes in a can of chipotle chiles — and sweet, juicy peaches could only come from the mind of a chef. Todd Richards of Richards' Southern Fried in Atlanta's Krog Street Market calls this his ideal summer breakfast, "along with a glass of Champagne." If you don't want to use a grill, just toast the bread and use the peaches freshly sliced. Featured in: Is It Southern Food, Or Soul Food?.
