I'm not a big fan of Pimento cheese but I've always wanted to make some. I checked out a few recipes online and put different ideas together and came up with one that I like.
I pulled out the old grater and start grating. I did not use the pre-shredded cheese because I heard it does not work as well, so I didn't take a chance.
I had my husband do the garlic mincing since Ive never in my life tried to do that. So together, we made a wonderful pimento cheese worth eating. Oh man! Is it good! I'll never opt for the store bought kind again unless I'm in a pinch for time or convenience.
2 cups shredded sharp cheese
2 cups Pepper Jack cheese
1 block cream cheese (room temp for easy mixing)
1 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons pimentos
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper
Just mix it all up and its ready to eat
If you do not really like pimentos, then opt for sweet red peppers instead. Then you can call it, pepper cheese. ...OK that sounds cheesy. But they say it works just as well as pimentos with hardly a change in the taste.
