Pimiento Cheese Sandwich

This sandwich of white bread and cheese spread is far from pretentious, but it became popular at a pretty fancy event: the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, where it’s still sold for just $1.50. Pimiento cheese spread itself far predates the Masters: The first published recipe can be traced to a 1908 issue of Good Housekeeping.
