thank you for a good pimenter(as my granny called it) cheese recipe-instead of the sugar I used sweet pickle juice -I do not like to taste the sugar crystals. I also used pregraded velveeta and then grated 2 cups of mild cheddar-as that is what I had-I mixed it all up with a hand held mixer and added Applewood bacon bits-yummy

I used pre-shredded Colby/cheddar mix and followed the remaining of the recipe. It was great! Vinegar was the key!

Amazing! It was a little heavy on the mayo for my taste, so I added some extra grated cheese and it was perfect! Thanks for posting- this was my first time making pimento cheese and I know I won't need to look for another recipe for next time! So simple, yet so good!

Delish! The vinegar is key in this recipe. If you don't have sharp cheddar on hand, use a 1/4 tsp (or a dot more) of cayenne pepper. When serving on white bread, consider grilling it like a grilled cheese sandwich... out of this world!

I only had mild cheddar to work with, (decided to make it for hubby at the last minute) so it lost a bit in the translation. However, it was still very good! I did add an extra big glop of mayo because it seemed a bit dry. I will make it again when I have the right cheeses. Rae, thanks for a wonderful recipe! I love to be able to make "store-bought" things at home!

This is just how my mom makes it. This is excellent, way better than store bought.

I have been looking for a long time for a pimento cheese spread that tasted like the one I use to eat at a drugstore in my hometown. This is it. It must be the addition of the vinegar and sugar. There isn't a vinegar taste at all. Thanks Rae England. Bullwinkle.
