      I have never liked Pimento cheese, due to the fact it had cottage cheese in it, which I can not bring myself to eat. I just assumed, that was the way it is made. I attended a cocktail party last year and pimento cheese was served along with crackers. The hostess said " you have to try this" I explained, that I don't like cottage cheese, she assured me, that there was no cottage cheese in this recipe. I tasted it and, it was delish. I just made this recipe and it, is also delish. I grated one 8oz. block of chedder and 4 oz. of monterey jack, I also added a couple pinches of cayene pepper. I had it on a slider bun, can't wait to taste it after it sits in the fridge for awhile. Thanks for sharing!

      I recently prepared another version of this recipe that included cream cheese and spices. It tasted weird. This recipe is IT! Exactly what I recall pimento (minna) cheese being. I served this at a gathering along side of celery sticks and it was gobbled up in minutes. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.

      Yes Maam! This is the real-deal, AUTHENTIC SOUTHERN STYLE Pimento cheese. No onions, no celery no extra anything is needed. I have found that using my hand mixer on low speed to mix everything together really works nicely. And you must chill this for a bit to truly experience the real flavor. Yum Yum and YUM!
