Pimento Cheese

Perfect for brunch!

Unfortunately when I was shopping I  bought an 8 ounce piece of mild cheddar, and then while reading the recipe I realized it should have been either sharp or extra sharp cheese.   I decided to go ahead and adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly.

All  blended well in the food processor, and when I tasted a bit of the results, I really thought it was too bland, but overnight  the cayenne pepper kicked in and the next day it was perfect.

I chilled it for two days and then served it with crackers as an appetizer before dinner.


It was so easy to make and has such a fresh delicious taste compared to the packaged cheeses in the supermarket.

Another great treat from Dorie’s newest book “EveryDay Dorie, The Way I cook”.

  1. So glad that even in the pandemic (or especially amidst it ??) you are still creating delicious treats and feeding me oh so well. Post pandemic diet, here I come….


  2. After seeing your Post, it is going to be hard to wait until it’s a recipe choice for our group. So maybe I just won’t that and make it early. You made me curious to try it. I already have the ingredients on hand (meaning I will not have to go to the grocery store again) and Triscuits are a absolute must in my pantry. You two stay safe.
