   Put the shredded cheese in a bowl and set aside.  Hard cook and chop
   the egg, then set aside.  Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat.
   Add and cook the onion until transparent then add the flour and stir
   until well blended.  Heat until bubbly and then add the cream, salt
   and tobasco sauce gradually while stirring constantly.  Cook until the
   mixture boils.  Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer and remove from the heat.
   Blend in the lemon juice. Add the creamed mixture to the cheese and
   add the egg, pimento and stuffed olive slices to the mixture.  Mix
   until well blended and set aside.  Pan broil the bacon slices until
   they are partially cooked and still limp. Spread the bread with the
   softened butter and then spread the cheddar mixture on the bread,
   allowing 1/4 cup for each slice.  Top each slice with 2 of the bacon
   slices crossed diagonally.  Set the oven temperature to broil (500 or
   higher degrees F.)   Arrange the sandwiches on the broiler rack and
   place in broiler with the tops of the sandwiches 3-inches below the
   heat source.  Broil until cheddar mixture is bubbly and slightly
   browned and bacon slices are crisp.  Serve hot. Makes 6 open faced
   sandwiches
