A classic Southern comfort food, this spread is used as an appetizer with crackers, corn chips or celery. It is also smeared between two slices of white bread for sandwiches and as a topping for hamburgers and hot dogs. —Eileen Balmer, South Bend, Indiana

"I made up just 1/2 of this recipe for just the 2 of us.

It’s everything Pimento cheese should be. Creamy, sharp and Tangy. It just needs ample chilling time. And more importantly a very Good Grade of Cheddar cheese.
Hand grated cheese only no cheating by using pre shredded it will not be The Real Thing.
One recipe with so many uses other then a great sandwich.
TOH-VFE"

"This recipe is so close to what my Dad made for years while I was growing up. He and my Mom both worked full time so he helped with the cooking 50 years ago when Southern men just didn’t do that! He often added my Mom’s homemade sweet pickle relish, just because we all loved it."

"This is like the one my mama has used for years. Except she just throws it all together and never measures!

DELICIOUS!"

"I made this for our annual family Easter party with the following changes. I added 2 ounces of cream cheese, I used sharp Cheddar cheese and about 3/4 cup of cheddar Jack cheese, I put in 2 ounces of pimiento instead of 4 and added seasoned salt to taste. I served it with lavish bread style crackers.

It was so good people asked for the recipe and I will be making this again."
