I love cheese. I think I could live on cheese alone. I can eat it melted, shredded, smeared, sliced, crumbled, juiced, well maybe not the last one, but I love cheese. A little unknown fact about me is that I am very particular about my pimento cheese. Store-bought pimento cheese just does not glorify cheese like it deserves. Honestly it usually gets my gag-reflex going; so I have made it my mission to perfect the art of pimento cheese-making.
Side Note: 8 oz blocks of cheese are 3 for $5 this week at Kroger.
Pennyless Homemade Pimento Cheese
8 oz Sharp Cheddar cheese shredded
8 oz Colby and Monetrey Jack cheese shredded
2 tbsp pimentos, smashed
3 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup good mayonnaise
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
cracked black pepper to taste
This is so easy you're going to laugh. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Eat and spread on your favorite bread, crackers, or use your spoon like I do!
Here's the chorus line. Well, black pepper, garlic powder, salt, and sugar were late for auditions.
Shred it like you mean it! It gives a great bicep workout.
Leave the cheese nubs for your 3-year-old he will love you for it, plus you won't slice off your fingers so you fingers will love you for it.
Smash with a fork.
Now it's time to eat!
