PIMENTO CHEESE SPREAD

This is one of my favorite recipes, adapted from Southern Living 2001 Recipes. The original recipe calls for mayonnaise, but I like to mix with Miracle Whip because I like the tangy taste.

OLD-FASHIONED PIMIENTO CHEESE SPREAD



Old-fashioned Pimiento Cheese Spread image

Old-fashioned pimiento cheese for old-fashioned times, i.e., summertime family reunions, "supper on the ground," lots of kids, watermelon and home-made ice cream. (At least that's the way it was for us.)

Time 30m

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimentos, do not drain
16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese or 16 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese

PIMENTO CHEESE SPREAD



Pimento Cheese Spread image

We had it in the fridge all the time from the deli in Virginia. This spread is so delicious, I think that this is a great spread to make for a large group gathering as a snack or appetizer. It has just that slight kick from the cayenne pepper that comes up at deli.

Provided by CHEF GRPA

Categories     Spreads

Time 20m

Yield 8-12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

1/2 lb 'mild yellow cheddar cheese or 1/2 lb longhorn' cheese
1/2 lb aged sharp white cheddar cheese, preferably Vermont 'or New York'
one 7-ounce can pimiento, with their juice
1 cup chopped scallion
1/2 cup mayonnaise, 'preferably homemade'
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
6 dashes Tabasco sauce (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
crackers or raw vegetables, for serving

Steps:

  • 1. Use a meat grinder or the coarse side of a box grater to grate the cheese; for a grinder, use the cutter with large holes. Put the ground or grated cheese in a mixing bowl and add half the juice from the canned pimentos. Dice the pimentos and add them. Add the chopped scallions.
  • 2. Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and garlic. Add this to the cheese mixture. Add the Worcestershire, Tabasco, and black pepper and blend well; taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • 3. Serve at room temperature as a spread for crisp crackers and raw vegetables or use as a sandwich spread. (Pimento cheese can be tightly sealed and kept for several days in the refrigerator.).
  • Notes: I learned to make pimento cheese from a southern friend's mom. She doesn't use Worcestershire or garlic but I think they sound like great additions. I think I'll add this to next weekend's football food! I made it a day ahead of time and I think it tastes even better with a little time to rest before serving.

THE BEST EVER PIMIENTO CHEESE SPREAD



The Best Ever Pimiento Cheese Spread image

This is a tart pimiento cheese because of the very sharp cheese plus the addition of the vinegar, and the lemon pepper. If you like tangy foods, then this is a very good recipe to try! We have never gone back to store bought pimiento cheese after this recipe. My aunt's mother-in-law invented this spread and we have been eating it for years.
