Description

This started as an attempt to recreate a pimento cheese made by a small company on the coast here in South Carolina. I played around, and while it may not be the same, I love it. Hope you do too!

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces, weight Softened Cream Cheese
  • ⅓ cups Duke's Mayonnaise (or More, To Taste)
  • 2 cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar
  • 1 jar (4 Oz.) Pimentos
  • Pepper To Taste
  • Garlic Salt, to taste

Preparation

Allow cream cheese to soften. Use a mixer to break down cream cheese and make it easy to incorporate.

Add mayonnaise, using 1/3 cup as a starting point. This isn’t a creamy pimento cheese, so you may need to add more mayo to create the consistency you’d like.

Mix in sharp cheddar. Drain and add a small jar of pimentos.

Add pepper and garlic salt to taste.

Serve cold.

I agree, missamylin, I added 1 tsp of dill pickle juice in the above recipe. It made all the difference. I also added some diced jalapeno pepper (about 2 tablespoons) just for a hint of heat.

A plus is that, I have more than double the amount of cheese spread I would get from that known South Carolina company would give me for $4 for 8 oz. It taste just like their jalapeno cheese spread. I’m so happy at my success.

I made this and it was really good. I followed the advice of a friend of mine, and added a very small amount of pickle juice. The result was a great pimento cheese!!!
