Purée Cheddar, cream cheese, and mayonnaise in a food processor; pulse in pimentos until coarse. Stir in chives and season pimento cheese with salt and cayenne.

Brush one side of bread slices with butter, then place on a cutting board, buttered side down. Spread about ⅓ cup pimento cheese on half of the slices; top with remaining slices, buttered side up.

Cook sandwiches, two at a time, in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes total; transfer to a cutting board and let rest 2 minutes before cutting each in half. Refrigerate any remaining pimento cheese to serve on crackers.
