What southern cook doesn’t have a good ol’ pimento cheese spread recipe?   We all claim ours is the best!

Pimento Cheese SpreadDuring my first years of blogging, about 7 years ago, I made a recipe for pimento cheese from a cookbook.  Being a northern gal, I really didn’t know what it was.  Honestly, I’m not even sure how I came across the recipe.  I do remember I didn’t really like it, though.

Pimento Cheese SpreadThat particular recipe was hot and creamy, more like a dip.  It could’ve been the consistency I didn’t much appreciate, as I don’t remember the taste.  It wasn’t until we moved to Mississippi that both Ben and I decided we love pimento cheese!

The type we like is chunky and freshly grated.  I shared a lightened up version last week, and now I want to give you my favorite traditional way of making it.  You can vary up the ingredients as you see fit, but this is our ultimate formula that we oh so very much love.

  1. My father makes a version of this, not as many flavorful ingredients, can’t wait to try this one.

  2. I’m super excited you posted this because 1) I need a traditional pimento and cheese recipe and 2) it reminded me to make reservations at Parlor Market for when I come to Jackson tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe AND the reminder!
