I have always bought the container of Pimento Cheese in the refrigerator section of the grocery store for Pimento Cheese sandwiches because I have never made or tasted homemade Pimento Cheese. A couple of weeks ago, my friend and co-worker, Brenda, brought me a taste of her homemade Pimento Cheese and I was hooked. It was so much better than store-bought Pimento Cheese. I made Pimento Cheese Wed. night. I snapped a picture and then put the Pimento Cheese into the refrigerator. Thursday morning, I got the Pimento Cheese out of the refrigerator, got out a spoon and attempted to spread the Pimento Cheese onto a slice of bread for a sandwich. Well, the Pimento Cheese did not want to spread! We had estimated the amount of mayonnaise for the recipe and I did not put enough mayonnaise in the Pimento Cheese. Thursday evening, I added more mayonnaise and now I have a winner! Buy a fresh loaf of bread and enjoy!
8 oz. block of mild cheddar cheese
2 -3 Tbsp. diced pimientos
1/2 tsp. sugar
salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Grate cheese into a bowl. Add diced pimientos, sugar, salt, pepper, and mayonnaise. Combine well. Refrigerate.
