Pimento Cheese Recipe

Pimento Cheese
By: Janie Orr

1 pound Colby cheese (also good with Longhorn, Monterrey Jack, or a mixture)
4 ounces diced pimentos
Tiny bit of garlic powder or garlic salt

Cut cheese into chunks, then put into a food processor and whirl until it is in small pieces. Add pimentos and garlic powder/salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until all ingredients are evenly dispersed.

When you are ready to serve, add a tiny bit of mayonnaise**. Best served on whole wheat or another dark bread, lettuce, and Mom’s Bread and Butter Pickles (see our recipe).

**Janie’s Tip – Most people tend to add too much mayonnaise. Only use enough to allow the pimento cheese to easily spread onto the bread.
