Cheese Pimiento Spread

Posted by in Merienda

As a child, cheese pimiento was one of the things my mom used to make for us. Pre-made spreads or store bought fillings were unheard of in our household. My mom makes her own egg or chicken salad and even ham spread for our school snacks and lunches.

I must admit I was not really fond of cheese pimiento back then since I really don’t like cheese that much as a child. But that changed as I grew up and my taste buds matured and developed.

I made this yesterday since I suddenly had a craving for it. You will only need three basic ingredients: cheese, pimientos and mayonnaise.

To make I grated an 8 oz package of extra sharp cheddar cheese, then finely chopped a bottle of pimiento that was thoroughly drained. Into these I added about 3/4-1 cup of mayonnaise. I added a tsp of sugar to balance the saltiness of the cheese. Mix well until thoroughly combined.

Serve as a filling for sandwiches, crackers or even as a dip.
