Back of Game Day Eats: Pimento Cheese and Bacon Bites Still on the hunt for a finger food that'll complete your Super Bowl Sunday? Consider serving the sliders and wings with a cheesy, toasty Southern snack that'll please just about anyone. Seriously, it's melted pimento cheese, crunchy baguette, and crispy bits of bacon — how can you go wrong? I love the worry-free factor of these bites. The pimento cheese can be made several days ahead, and the recipe can be halved and still turns out great. I don't have a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, so I hand-mixed the pimento cheese.
