Hey there, sweetie!
As you guys know, I was born and raised here in the South.
Which is lucky for you, because, as I am sure you are also aware, it’s party (aka, yummy appetizer) season.
Or, if you’re anything like me, calories-dont-count-season.
And if the south is known for anything, its delicious please-dont-tell-me-how-much-butter/mayonaise/cheese-you-used food.
So I thought what better a time to share one of my favorite treats… good ol fashioned pimento cheese.
It is pretty much the tastiest and most soul satisfying appetizer that I can think of, plus its super easy and can be made ahead, making it perfect for Thanksgiving or other holiday get togethers.
And as an added bonus, the leftovers make amazing grilled cheese sandwiches!
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
2 cups sharp grated cheddar cheese
4 ounces diced pimentos, drained
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 green onions, green and white parts, sliced
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Combine the pimentos, cream cheese, mayo, garlic, and paprika in a bowl.
Mix until combined.
Add the cheese and green onions until combined.
Serve with your favorite crackers and enjoy!
Can be stored, covered in the fridge for a day or two…if you can resist the urge to make pimento grilled cheese sandwiches all day every day.
