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!

    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.
