A Southern spread

Pimento Cheese Sandwich

Pimento Cheese Sandwich

We know what you’re thinking. If you haven’t come across this spread before you might be a little wary, but give it a try, your taste buds will thank us.

Just combine grated cheddar and Monterey jack, a dollop of mayonnaise and some garlic–salt and black pepper to taste—and you have the best tasting cheese spread this side of the Mason Dixon.

This Southern staple can be put on anything from celery to crackers, but our favorite is a grilled pimento cheese sandwich. Butter two pieces of bread and smooth on the PC (add tomatoes and/or bacon if you’re feeling adventurous).

Now that you’ve been schooled on a Southern specialty, we encourage you to experiment with your own version of this classic-add cayenne pepper or Tabasco for an extra kick, or replace a bit of the mayo with cream cheese for some tang.

What’s your favorite twist on this Southern spread?

Until next time,

xoxo,
