Homemade Pimento Cheese

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.
