Pimento Cheese

I grew up in Montana.  Montana’s don’t eat pimento cheese.  When I moved down south everyone ate pimento cheese.  I found it odd and unappealing.  Oh how wrong I was!

  This is Jonathan’s mom’s recipe and I adore it.  In small doses, of course.  This is a special treat.  I love it most on rye bread.  It’s also good melted a grilled burger (sinfully good).

Make this for your next potluck or family get together.  Your guest will love this southern classic.

    Pimento cheese is SO southern. It is especially good on burgers or in a grilled cheese… I have never seen a recipe use Velveeta before, which I gather is an interesting combination. Glad you came around!
