ISO Pimento Cheese Recipe

I just had a grilled pimento cheese sandwich for lunch & would like to make some myself. Does anyone have a good pimento cheese recipe they would like to share? It'll be a few weeks before I get to try it but I'd like to have the recipes so I can decide which one(s) I'd like to try. Thanks!

crewsk, I found this, and it sounded good. The pecans could be omitted, but, I think I keep them in if I get time to make it. It has 5 stars by 3 different reviews.

Thanks texasgirl, that does look good! I like the addition of hot sauce in it too.

Me too. I think it'll give it just enough kick. I buy some down here that I noticed has a spice to it, I'm wondering now, if that is why.

Homemade is soooo good. One of our bbq buddies makes it, but we have never gotten his recipe.

I agree Rainee! My mom made some many years ago when I was about 10 or so & it was wonderful!! I remember she got it at little too salty but the taste & texture was nothing like store bought.

crewsk - this is a recipe for a pimento cheese spread for an appetizer - it's very rich. I tried making a sandwich out of it and like i said, it was rich!! lol But you could probably add more mayo to it.

Pimento Cheese


8 oz. sharp yellow cheese, grated
8 oz. white cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt (I do not use this much salt--maybe half or just over half--depends on your taste)


18-25 shakes of Texas Pete or
*1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper and 9-12 shakes of Texas Pete (this is the one I use)


20 slices of jalapeno pepper, chopped fine

1 golf ball size spring onion, chopped fine

8 oz. mayonnaise

4 oz. drained pimento, chopped



Mix and let sit overnight in refrigerator or eat immediately if you can't wait.


It sounds weird I know but it's killer good. I would add more mayo to make it not so rich but the hot sauce/pepper/jalapenos are really good. I would make a separate batch for the TC because it is hot.

I love a grilled pimento cheese sandwich with tomatoes on it.

I fix this recipe all the time. People up in New York look at me strangly when I say I am eating pimiento cheese. Most of my friends up here have never heard of it.

This is a variation of Paula Deen's recipe, I absolutely love it

1 (3oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 cup grated Monterey Jack
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 t. house seasoning (1 cup salt, 1/4 cup black pepper, 1/4 cup garlic powder)
2-3 Tablespoons pimentos, chopped small (sometimes I use a little more)
1 t. grated onion
cracked black pepper

Beat cream chees until smooth and fluffy. Add rest of ingredients until well blended. The original recipe says to beat all ingredients, but I just stir it together. YOu can use it as a dip or on sandwiches.

Another of our good bbq buddies bakes jalapeno bread in one of his cookers, which great on it's own. Take his bread with our buddie's homemade pimento cheese..and a Cheerwine..........

make a bull dog break a chain!

See why we enjoy doing cookoffs?
