Ingredients

How to make it

  • Grate the cheddar into a large sturdy dish with low sides (so you can easily do the mashing and mixing);
  • Dump the contents of the jar of pimentoes on top of the grated cheese;
  • Using a fork, mash the two ingredients together until very well mixed;
  • Add mayo and mix (add more if it seems dry);
  • Add seasonings - black pepper, celery seed, hot sauce and mix some more;
  • When everything is mixed, transfer to a storage container with a tight lid; it'll keep in the fridge for a couple of days;
  • Now you're ready to stuff lengths of celery as an appetizer, or use as a spread for crackers, or use to make a sandwich!

    I could pretty much live on the stuff. Haven't had it in awhile, so you've inspired me to use your recipe this weekend when sons are coming down for lunch. Thanks.

    When I need a snack at night I make a grilled pimento cheese sandwich. Yummm! I have this 3-4 times a week.
    Or if I need a sweet snack, I grill a peanut butter and jelly. The best is grilled cheese with maple syrup, like stuffed french toast.

    I have loved this since I was a kid also. I put a bit of Mircle Whip in mine for that twang.

    Oh how much I've missed this. I'm going to go make it now! Thanx! (I see we have a pimento cheese club starting here!)

    Additional comment 24 March: All my friends here in the Isle of Man absolutely LOVE this. I've added 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce and it really tastes great!

    Great recipe....there is nothing like home made "paminter cheese"! A true Southern delight...right down to the "heaping" tablespoons full of May!

    I have loved pimento cheese since I was a kid. I'm still a sucker for the little jars put out by Kraft. I get freshly made stuff at the supermarket now, but it's expensive. I'm going to try this recipe. Thanks!

    I love pimento cheese but have never tried making it. I even like the storebought stuff so I know this has to be great. Can't wait to try it! Thanks

    Have been wondering how this was made - saw it on the food channel - can't say this is a Minnesota meal at all! Thanks for the recipe - sounds good to me!

    Tried your recipe this week - it's great! Chefjeb uses 1 cup Velveeta in his recipe, so I put that in, and it turned out really good.
