Pimento Cheese

This recipe is super simple and delicious, with many uses.  It can be used as a spread, dip, or sandwich.  I like to make a sandwich and add dill pickle chips.  The recipe can be easily halved, which I do most of the time since usually there is only the two of us.


•  1 box (16 oz) Velvetta original cheese

•  2 cups (8 oz) finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

•  1 jar (4 oz) diced pimentos

•  1 cup mayonnaise (I've always used Duke's)

•  Sea salt & black pepper; taste before adding

Chill the Velvetta in the freezer for 15 minutes (no more) before grating.



1.  Using a grater with large holes, shred the Velvetta into a large            bowl.  I have successfully used the food processor for this step.          The Velvetta is meant to be a little creamy.

2.  Stir in the Cheddar cheese and pimentos; add mayonnaise and       fold in until the mixture is creamy. 

3.  You can serve right away or refrigerate until needed.




•  Make a sandwich (great toasted), or serve with crackers, as a

   topper for cocktail bread or cut-up with fresh veggies. 


•  Use pimento cheese to make stuffed celery sticks for a tasty             appetizer.

•  Add a half a diced jalapeno to the mix for a kick (or more to suit       your taste).

•  Add bacon, lettuce and tomato for the ultimate sandwich!                 Soooo good!


•  If you need to thin, add a little more mayo.
