Pimento Cheese (aka Southern Pâté) is simple and easy. Never heard of pimento cheese till we moved to the south. Sure you can buy the pimento cheese in a plastic tub but why not make it yourself. Trust me you will like it.
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups grated extra-sharp yellow cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 1½ cups grated extra-sharp white cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup diced drained pimiento peppers from jar, roasted red peppers
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix first 6 ingredients in medium bowl. Blend well. Season with salt and pepper. Cover; chill until cold, at least 2 hours. Serve pimiento cheese with crackers, or, if you like spread between 2 slices of white bread add some prepared bacon and tomato. Fry in a skillet on both sided.
