Pimento Cheese

Total Time:
10 min
Prep:
10 min

Yield:
4 cups
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 pound freshly grated extra-sharp Cheddar (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 sweet onion, grated
  • One 4-ounce jar pimentos, drained and finely chopped
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Crackers, for serving
  • Celery sticks, for serving
Directions

Combine the cheese, mayonnaise and onions in a bowl. Stir until well combined. Add the pimentos and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with crackers and celery sticks.

Making ahead: The prepared cheese filling can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

It's tempting to use pre-grated cheese, but pre-grated cheese sometimes contains additives that prevent clumping. It's better to freshly grate your own so the pimento cheese will be creamy--and additive free.
