PIMIENTO CHEESE

Prep Time 10 mins
Course Appetizer, condiment, Side Dish
Cuisine American, Southern
Servings 2 cups

Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar
  • 8 oz Cracker Barrel Vermont White Cheddar
  • 4 oz chopped pimentos
  • 1/4-1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Place cheese and drained pimentos into a food processor with 1/4 cup mayo and pulse just a few times until just mixed.
  • Check to see if mixture holds together. If it is too dry add more mayo, 1-2 T and pulse once or twice. Check and add additional mayo until you get the consistency you want.
  • I use just enough mayonnaise to bind, you want to taste the cheese, not the mayo! Do not overmix! Makes about 2 1/2 cups. Keep in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
