"Pimiento cheese might just
 be called the most Southern
 dish on earth."

~Gayden Metcalfe
  & Charlotte Hays

Beer- Cheese Pimiento

8 ounces grated extra sharp cheese
8 ounces red rind cheese or mild American cheese, grated
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 1/2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tablespoons salt
1/2 Tablespoons dry mustard
1/2 cup beer, not lite
several splashes of Tabasco
1 jar diced pimientos
Homemade mayonnaise to taste and to
make a spreadable PC

Makes 1 quart

Blend all the above ingredients well. Chill. This always improves with age.

A good pimiento cheese sandwich has a spread of mayonnaise on both sides.
If you don't want to make mayonnaise, please use a good store bought brand like Dukes.

I didn't say this was in anyway, shape or form a healthy dish, that is why I only make it once a year...but it really is good...drool!

  6. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

  7. My gosh- this is now on my to-do list!

  8. Oh thank you Tracey! My mom has been on the hunt for a really good pimento cheese recipe so I will have to share this with her.

    We can't find it up here and Steve really misses it! (So thank you from Steve, too!)

  9. Mmmmm, this sounds a lot like my aunt's recipe (that I still use) except for the addition of beer -- gotta try it! And have you ever had a pimento cheese sammie with strawberry jam and bacon? I discovered this heavenly treat over at Rebekka Seale's lovely blog 'Dear Friend'. It's out of this world good!
