Pimento Cheese

I remember eating pimento cheese sandwiches as a child and hearing how my grandmother would make it from scratch for my mom when she was growing up.


Pimento Cheese

Of course, my mom is many things but when I was growing up, a made from scratch cook was not one of them; we ate premade, processed store brand pimento cheese spread.  Now, while it wasn’t gross, I did not realize how good pimento cheese spread could be until I started experimenting on my own.

Oh. My. Goodness.  This stuff is definitely delish!!  Now, you know I have to try out my finished products on family and friends to see if it is blog worthy.  I have a friend, who is a very good sport, who admitted he hated pimento cheese spread as a kid, but once he tried this, I kid you not, his face lit up!!  He came back for seconds, thirds, heck I had to send him home with a container.   Here’s hoping your friends and family think it is as big a hit!!
