Pimento cheese is a southern staple, but no one can agree on what “the recipe” is. So I decided not to agree too and make my own, one that fits my taste. This one has a Stilton cheese to add a little funk. (Those with no sense of adventure can leave the Stilton out.) This is perfect for a New Years party or watching the Super Bowl. For my Michigan friends sharp Pinconning cheese would be delicious.
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese grated
4 oz pimento
4 oz mayonnaise (they don’t use Miracle WhiP in the south)
4 oz cream cheese
4 oz white Stilton cheese, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix all ingredients in bowl
Blend with a mixer for 3 minutes or until all ingredients are combined
refrigerate for 30 minutes
now you can use it like this or …………….
place in a 350 oven in an oven safe dish for 15 minutes so it’s oowy gooey then serve with cracker or bread
serve as a grilled cheese or on crackers
