Life Changing Recipe: Pimento Cheese


I love a lot of things about living in the South.  The heat is not one of them.  Pimento cheese really, really is.  Until last week I have been happy to indulge in the occasional tub of my favorite (Palmetto, anyone?) and then I came across a recipe in an old Martha Stewart magazine which--in spite of the damage to my waistline--definitely changed my life for the better.

It is so easy!  All you need is:

6 ounces shredded cheddar
6 ounces shredded sharp white cheddar
1/2 C mayonnaise
2 T or so of pimentos (throw some of the pimento juice in there too!)
Cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste

Mix it all up together and that is that!  I like processing it a bit in the food processor too, but you don't need to.  It's ready to spread it on crackers, make a sammie, or just eat it with a spoon.  This costs about the same as buying a tub but makes twice as much--so bonus!  Saving money and taking names.

Also: drink some sweet tea.  Thanks.

Some of my readers are all like, "I live in Minnesota, I've never even had pimento cheese before."  Okay so all I can say is go directly to your kitchen and bring a taste of the South on in to your home.  It will change your life!
