I have to be honest that I have not always being fond of pimento cheese until about a year ago. Moving back to the south gave me a new culinary vision to change classic comfort dishes and give them a twist. Pimento cheese is truly an iconic southern staple that I can use to build new and exciting dishes.
2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
8 oz. cream cheese
4 oz. jar diced pimentos
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme
1. Grate the cheese and add the mayo, cream cheese and pimentos. Fold the ingredients together. Add the spices and mix together. Keep refrigerated.
