Big Bad Breakfast, Oxford, MS: The Southern Belly

John Currence’s distinctly southern take on the classic grilled cheese starts with pimento cheese, a down-home combination of cheddar, cream cheese, mayo, and pimentos. He adds a creamy, tangy slaw (made with mayo and apple cider vinegar), bread and butter pickles for a bit of sweetness, and house-cured bacon for crunch and smokiness. The finishing touch? The whole thing goes on a butter-lubed griddle—no surprise when you consider that this chef goes by the motto “Lard have mercy!”
