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.

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.
