READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Penny Stettinius

Ok, so this is the one hundred thousandth pimento cheese recipe on here! What can I say? This one is the best I have ever had! My friend, Suzy's mother's recipe. In the South you have to have this at every special occasion along with deviled eggs and fried chicken, sweet tea, and great friends!

I made this for my book club meeting. We read a book about a mouse, so, of course, we all brought cheese stuff :) I chose this recipe because it was the easiest, but also it's exactly how it was made when I was growing up in SC. :) The ladies liked it, so I'd say it was a hit!
