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.



  1. Mix the cheddar, pepper jack, mayonnaise, pimientos, shallot and cayenne in a medium bowl.
  2. Spread the pimiento cheese mixture on 4 bread slices and top with the remaining 4 bread slices.
