These disappear at cocktail parties! My mom made these 40 years ago....they are still always a hit. This makes a ton. Freeze them on a cookie sheet, toss them in a freezer bag and enjoy a few, or many!

Boy, these were a hit on so many levels! First, they are easy to put together, secondly, you can freeze them, wonderfully. Third, they make a great dinner (fast!) and it's good for the soul. I followed this fairly exactly, except I accidentally bought the Pimento Cheese (in the jar - just like the Old English Cheese), but it tasted so good, mixed all together. Also, I took a biscuit cutter and cut a smaller circle in the english muffins, and that made the grabbies even more bite-sized. (I used the extra outsides of the english muffins for a crusty topping for salads by toasting them in a pan until crispy.) These are so good you will enjoy every grabby bite! I also dotted the top with minced green peppers for color. Thanks!
