Pimento cheese is a southern thing. It is available in the dairy case almost everywhere here. Problem is, there are as many versions as there are cooks. Wait! I guess that isn't really a problem, but I just couldn't find one that suited our tastes perfectly until I started tweaking one my daughter liked a lot. The addition of shrimp makes it a bit more substantial and attractive to northerners, too! I recommend using Duke's mayo if you are lucky enough to be able get it. Cooking time is chilling time.
