Pimiento Cheese Spread
This will disappear really fast! The last time I made it, it was gone before I could get a picture of it. Serve as an appetizer with crackers or make pimiento cheese sandwiches. Or try it on a hamburger. Or fill celery with it.
I didn’t process my pimiento because I like to see the pimiento in the spread. But if you make sandwiches with it, you might want to process it smooth. For sandwiches, use white bread and cut the crusts off. Spread on bread and cut in triangles.
This also makes a large batch, but very easy to cut in half.
- 3 (4-oz.) jars canned, diced pimientos, drained
- 2 (16-oz.) pkgs. sharp Cheddar cheese, finely grated
- 1 cup mayonnaise
Place the drained pimientos in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. (I didn’t do this.) Using an electric mixer, combine the cheese and pimiento, beating until smooth. Beat in the mayonnaise.
The spread may be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Remove the spread from the refrigerator and allow it to reach room temperature before serving.
Makes 4 cups.
