Pimento Cheese Spread

Pimento Cheese Spread
makes about 2 cups
Pimento cheese can best be described as southern comfort  food, it makes a great spread on crackers, apples, or pears  and is one heck of a grilled cheese sandwich!  The taste of this recipe is also much better than that of the commercial product in the little bottle.


1 pound sharp  yellow Cheddar cheese, grated
1 small jar of pimentos, drained and roughly chopped
½  cup mayonnaise
½  teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
Kosher or sea salt, to taste


1.  Place all  cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and cayenne pepper in the bowl of a food processor or blender and processes until smooth.

2.  Place the cheddar cheese/mayonnaise mixture in a bowl and stir in the chopped pimentos until they are evenly distributed.  Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and cayenne pepper to taste.

3.  Transfer to a  serving dish to serve immediately or to storage a storage contained to use later.  Makes a great grilled cheese sandwich!
