I thought that pimento cheese was more of a spread, at least that is what I've seen here.

I remember those little jars. I loved the stuff. I've bought some in tubs in the dairy case. It's not the same and isn't very good.

I love the versatility of making it myself. So many cheeses to choose and mix. I like it that I can cook with the prepared pimento cheese. It really does make a killer cheese sauce when mixed and heated with a cream of something soup.

It is. It is made with cream cheese. But this is a house brand. We can buy it by the tubful also. It is more to the real stuff. But the slice kind is great for school lunches.

Last night I was looking at the Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook and came across a recipe for pimento cheese bread. It was a yeast bread with shredded cheese and chopped pimento worked into the dough. I was thinking it might be nice as a small roll like a cinnamon bun with the cheese and pimento as the filling. Next time I mix up a batch of white bread I am going to "snitch" some dough and experiment. Sort of like Rocklobster's pizza rolls.

The traditional pimento cheese also makes a killer macaroni salad if you thin the cheese spread with some milk.

I better put a can of Goya pimento on the shopping list!

this thread inspired me to create something 'like' pimento cheese.

I took my cheese spread (shredded colby and cheddar, cream cheese, garlic and salt) and added and equal part of some pan fried chopped onions and multi-colored peppers (red, green, yellow). It was delicious on wheat bread with a thin slice of smoked ham. Thanks for the inspiration.

I've never seen it or eaten it. Does anyone have a picture?

Simplest recipe: shredded cheddar, diced pimentos, mayo.

I like your combo, Blissful. I'll have to try that after making Bolas' onion base in my new crockpot,

My grandmother use to make pimento cheese spread all of the time. She would grind up ends of orange cheese blocks (colby, cheddar, even American cheese.) She would sometimes add it a bit of other cheese such as a little provolone. Then she would grind a jar of pimento. Add a bit of miracle whip, and then would add a tablespoon or two of softened cream cheese.

She did not grate the cheeses. She would put them through a grinder that she kept just for making her pimento cheese spread.

It was so good on white bread with tomato slices. Such good memories.

I love pimento cheese spread on a toasted English muffin. I like to make it with softened cream cheese, too. Parm adds a nice "bite" as does a little Asiago.
