Pimento Cheese Spread


January 20, 2014 by Emily

Everyone is all about veggies and salads and brown rice in january, resolutions and all… but that’s really not any fun is it?!

thats where pimento cheese comes into play. A decidedly southern treat that I’d never eaten until this past week. I don’t know where the desire to eat a bright orange cheese goo came from, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it for DAYS so I finally hustled my butt into the kitchen and made some.



The ingredients are fairly basic and steps are incredibly easy, but the results really are something special. The cheese is tangy, the peppers add a great texture and a nice zip to the mixture and mayo rounds everything out into a smooth creamy dream!

What you’ll need:

8 Ounces shredded sharp cheddar

4 Ounces drained and chopped pimento peppers

1/4 Cup mayo

optional: louisiana hot saucepimento-cheese2



1- Place half the cheese into the bowl of a food processor with the mayo and whir until its a smooth paste


2- scrape out the cheese/mayo mixture into a work bowl and combine the rest of the cheese and the peppers. Add a few dashes of hot sauce until it’s a zippy as you like!

3- Placed in an air tight container and chilled this lasts for up to a week.

You can eat this straight up, cold and on crackers… but I chose to make mine into a GRILLED Pimento cheese sammy.
