Tasty Tuesday: Pimento Cheese

... because sometimes you just need some good ol' pimento cheese! And homemade is SO MUCH BETTER than store-bought!

The Ingredients:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 4-6 tbsp diced pimentos, drained
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp house seasoning (see recipe below*)
  • pepper to taste

The Directions:

In a medium bowl, beat all ingredients together with a mixer. Season to taste.

*House Seasoning Recipe (this is from Paula Deen... she recommends that you just mix up a batch & keep it with your spices)

  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
