If you would like to spice this up a bit you can add a dash of garlic juice or puree or worcestershire sauce. Also green onion or hot sauce instead of cayenne. Spread this on thickly on bread, toast or inside celery sticks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine half the Cheddar and half the Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Mix together lightly. Knead in 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise until mixture is creamy and very smooth.
  2. Work in remaining cheese, garlic, shallot, pimientos, 1 tablespoon of reserved pimiento liquid, a dash of cayenne and a small pinch of dry mustard. Knead just enough to mix well: it should still have plenty of texture. Add remaining mayonnaise, if necessary—just enough to make it spreadable.
  3. Let stand 30 minutes. Serve cool or at room temperature.
