Southern Pimiento Cheese Spread
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
Can't rate until I make it, but the mere suggestion brings back memories of my childhood when pimento cheese came in a jar and we drank our morning orange juice out of "cheese glasses." Had to explain what I meant to my kids. We also had "jelly glasses," Flintstones being the favorites; they came with grape jelly used on our PB&J sandwiches for school lunches!
I like it as is! I didn't have crackers so I substituted Original flavor Bugles. Either way it's awesome!
Yummy!!! Spread on crackers topped with toasted, chopped pecans. I spread leftovers on bread, top with sliced ham and grill. So good!
Fabulous base for trying new add-ins!! Celery salt is BRILLIANT!!!! Grated onion, little Pepper Jack, large jar of roasted red peppers, pimento stuffed teeny green olives....
Great pimiento cheese spread! I loved the simplicity of it. Goes well with crackers as an appetizer or slathered on bread for a sandwich. Super easy to put together, too! I made it exactly as directed. Simple and delicious! I can see adding a dash or two of hot sauce for a little heat if you like. Will definitely make again!
One of my favorite spreads for crackers, sandwiches, even veggies. This is exactly how I've made it for years.
I love this spread. My mother-in-law added some diced onion to it. It goes great on sandwiches also.
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.
