Great food with a Southern accent

Pimento Cheese

Pimento Cheese

4 oz. softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese

6 oz. Best Maid Real Mayonnaise

8 oz. block of sharp cheddar cheese, shredded or in chunks to run through the food processor

4 oz. jar of diced pimentos, drained


I love using the food processor for this recipe.  Put 4 oz. of cream cheese in the food processor and pulse a few times.  Add the mayonnaise and pulse a few times.  Scrape down the sides if necessary. Add the chunks of cheese and pulse and then blend until the cheese is chopped and mixed in with the mayonnaise and cream cheese. Remove mixture from the food processor into a bowl and stir in the drained pimentos.  Refrigerate until you’re ready to spread on your favorite bread or crackers.  Refrigerate any leftovers.
