Pimento Cheese Spread

So cheesy

So cheesy

The secret to this Southern staple is a mix of different cheddar cheeses.

Pimento Cheese

  • 8 oz extra sharp orange cheddar shredded
  • 8 oz mild English cheddar shredded
  • 4 oz sharp Vermont white cheddar shredded
  • 8 oz Neufchatel cream cheese room temperature
  • 2-8 dashes Louisiana hot sauce (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp minced pimiento peppers
  • 1/2 cup olive oil based mayonnaise
  • Salt/pepper

In a stand blender beat cream cheese until whipped. Add everything else and beat until well combined. Season with salt and pepper and chill for two hours before serving.

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
