Better Than MeeMaw's Pimento Cheese by JC Phelps, Kentucky Food Blogger

Hey, y’all!

As far as I am concerned, pimento cheese is the soul of the south. When it’s good, there’s nothing that I love more; when it’s sub-par (or even mediocre), it offends me to my core… as it should any southerner!

That’s why I am sharing my recipe with y’all. You’ll never make it another away. Just don’t tell your MeeMaw. Why?

… it’s better than the batch that she makes!

Better Than MeeMaw's Pimento Cheese

Ingredients:

1 c. Monterey Jack, grated

1 c. Sharp Cheddar, grated

1/2 c. Mayonnaise

4 oz. Cream Cheese

4 tbsp. Diced Pimentos

1 tbsp. Minced Onion

3 tsp. Grated Onion

Garlic Powder, to taste

Kosher Salt, to taste

Black Pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Using either a wooden spoon (my preferred method) or a hand mixer, mix until well-incorporated.
  2. Add more kosher salt or black pepper to your desired taste.
  3. Serve on a croissant or artisan bread with lettuce.
  4. Enjoy – it’s as easy as that!

It doesn’t get much simpler – or delicious – y’all!
