Pimento Cheese

Pimento Cheese

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!
