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!
