Pimento Cheese

Pimento cheese…so Southern, so good.  I was buying it from the grocery store until I discovered how easy it is to make on my own.

Cream cheese, mayonnaise, and definitely sharp cheddar cheese.  There are differences in recipes where some use only mayo, no cream cheese, but on the sharp cheddar cheese, there is no substitute.

 Incredible with butter crackers, veggies or in a grilled cheese (my favorite!).


Pimento Cheese

Yield: 3 cups

3 oz cream cheese, room temperature

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons diced pimentos

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients, beat until well blended and the shredded cheese has been broken up some. Serve with crackers or as a dip for veggies.
