Pimento cheese is a southern staple and pretty simple stuff.  I grew up on it, so did my husband.  I don't buy it at the grocery store because I make it myself.  I always serve it on saltine crackers cuz it isn't fancy.



It's got just 5 ingredients; 8 oz. of sharp cheddar cheese,  3 Tbsp. of Duke's mayo, 2 oz. of drained jarred pimentos, 2 good splashes of worcestershire sauce and hot pepper flakes to taste.   Oh, and salt & pepper. 



I start by cubing the cheese before putting it in my mini food processor.



I process the cheese to break the cubes into crumbles then in go the rest of the ingredients.  The red pepper flakes are from our garden.  They're a super hot mixture of ghost, habanero, Joe's round and red caribbean peppers.  If I was going to use store bought flakes, I'd add about 1/4 teaspoon.



Give it a whirl in your food processor and it's done!



I met two documentary filmmakers at a cookout last weekend who recently completed a short film titled 'Pimento Cheese, Please!'  I took a batch and it was very well received (they took home the leftovers).  It makes a great appetizer and is usually even better the day after you make it.
