Pimento Cheese


I've always enjoyed pimento cheese on a cracker or celery, or even in little tea sandwiches. Here's a homemade version that will put the purchased product to shame. Try some on a cracker or on a sandwich. Maybe even with a little fried bacon. Yum!

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons minced onion
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz. Muenster cheese, grated
4 oz. sliced Pimentos

In large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, onion, hot sauce, and black pepper. Mix together until creamy. Add cheese and pimentos and mix until combined.

Place in a bowl and refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving to let the ingredients blend. Serves 10-12.
