Recipe Rewind: Pimiento Cheese
You don't get much more Southern than Pimiento Cheese. This week I made it twice, so it seems like a good idea to post the recipe again. The thing about pimiento cheese is that everyone makes it slightly different: some use finely minced onion, some don't; some use only Cheddar, others use a mixture of cheese; some use lots of mayo, some only use a bit. To my taste, I've perfected the combination of this simple recipe over many years. Mine uses onion, Cheddar, American, and only a small amount of mayo. And if you've never tried a grilled pimiento cheese sandwich, you should! To make it even better, top the cheese mixture with crisp bacon and sliced tomatoes. Yummy!
