Pimento cheese is one of my husband’s favorite sandwich spreads. We like it on toasted bread. There’s a really good brand of local pimento cheese at the grocery store here, but it’s also quite pricey. Instead I started using this homemade pimento cheese recipe. It’s absolutely delicious. I make a batch anytime I can find sharp cheddar on sale.
By the way, you can save a bundle by grating your own instead of buying the expensive bagged cheese. Just look for large blocks on sale and use a box grater to grate your own at home.
Homemade Pimento Cheese Recipe
- 1 large can evaporated milk
- 1 lb. grated sharp cheese
- 7 ozs pimentos (a small jar)
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- ½ tbsp dry mustard
- salt (to taste)
- cayenne pepper (to taste)
Place milk into a saucepan and heat. After milk is hot, add cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. Add pimento and the other ingredients. Stir well then put in the refrigerator. Let stand in the fridge until it thickens.
This pimento cheese goes well on toasted bread. If you are looking for a healthy snack place the pimento cheese on celery stalks.
