How to Make Homemade Pimento Cheese


Making pimento cheese at home is easy peasy and in my opinion, so much better than anything you can purchase in pre-packed containers in the market. It only requires 4 ingredients {one of which is usually a gimme ingredient in my house} and just a few minutes. I like to smear mine on a toasted baguette but it’s equally delicious in sandwich form too. The recipe comes from my fabulously techno-talented friend Christy who makes the best pimento cheese I’ve ever tasted ; )

Add a glass of SWEET TEA and you’ll be all set!
