Party Pimiento Cheese

Pimiento Cheese is a southern icon that can be prepared a thousand ways & each good cook has just right combination of flavors to make a stellar batch. No more then freshly grated cheese, mayonnaise & pimientos magically dusted with a balance of seasonings is needed in order to have everyone clamoring for more. Once a base recipe has been blended, add toasted pecans, minced jalapeño or fresh herbs to give it your signature touch. Party Pimiento Cheese uses roasted red bell peppers for an update & has a little cream cheese added making it a bit creamier than the standard. Always make a double batch as it will go quickly & if any remains after the party, top BLT’s, burgers from the grill or fried green tomatoes with it for good measure. Learn how to make this southern classic that can be used for a variety of entertaining & everyday applications.

How To Make Pimiento Cheese

 My mother always has pimiento cheese in the refrigerator. If unexpected company drops by or a quick lunch is in order, she has this southern staple on standby. Anything truly worth having generally requires an extra step or two as in the case with pimiento cheese. Do not cut corners as you will be rewarded with the added effort.

There is a proper technique that should be followed when making a quality handcrafted batch of pimiento cheese. First & foremost, allow the Cheddar to stand at room temperature approximately 20 minutes to make grating the cheese easier. And yes, you must grate your own– never use pre shredded to prepare pimiento cheese as it is dusted with a coating that will not allow the dressing to permeate through the mixture & prevents the blend from becoming creamy. Once all of the ingredients are folded together, it can be served right away however the flavor gets better over time. Pimiento cheese can be made several days in advance & stored covered in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
