Pimento Cheese

If y’all have never had Pimento Cheese, you have Got To Try It! This Southern classic is a staple in most kitchens. Creamy, cheesy goodness with a pop of tangy pepper. We slather this on crackers, burgers, fried green tomato sandwiches and of course, grilled cheese sandwiches.

I swear you could spread this on a flip flop and it would be delicious.

I usually have a Tupperware container of this just hanging out in our refrigerator. It is great to be able to just pop it into a serving dish if you have company that stops in unexpectedly. This is simple and quick to whip up and as I said, it tastes great on everything. One of my favorite ways to have it is as a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich.

Oh, and if you have never had a Fried Green Tomato Sandwich with Pimento Cheese, you have got to try it! Two Southern favorites in one delicious sandwich.
