Two little words that can cause casual discussions about food to get all high-pitched and in your face and my momma’s better than your momma’s recipe type of thing.
Yea, well, my pimiento cheese kicks your momma’s pimento cheese where the sun don’t…
Wait a minute.
I’m just writing my blog here, I’m not actually arguing with anyone about this.
Feeding Groom Pimiento Cheese
½ pound each Monterey jack and extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1-½ cups Hellmann’s mayonnaise…no light, non fat hoody hoo here. The real thing.
A bit of grated onion, not much
A good pinch cayenne and a dash of Tabasco
A good squeeze fresh lemon juice
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper. Lawry’s Seasoned Salt is a fave in the South, but not to worry if you don’t have it.
½ cup diced roasted red peppers, the ones in a jar, people. They do best for this, not ones you have just roasted and diced.. You need the jarred ones.
Mix the mayo, cayenne, Tabasco, salt and pepper to taste, lemon juice and diced peppers together.
Add to the cheese in a large bowl. Mix with your hands. If you want more creamy pimiento cheese, add a bit more Hellmann’s.
Makes a bit over a pound of pc.
Serve on your finger, apples, make a sandwich, a spoon, a celery stick, on top of a hamburger, in a patty melt, on a piece of French bread at 2 in the morning..
The possibilities are endless.
