a grilled pimento cheese. does it getter any better? i get hankerings for this stuff, so i whipped up a batch. it is insanely easy and just as delicious.
in your processor fitted with the grating blade, shred an 8 ounce block of good sharp cheese. don't go house brand on this, kraft is okay, cabot is good, tillamook is da bomb. pop the cheese into a bowl while you switch over to your steel blade. toss cheese back in and then add a small(4oz) jar of diced pimentos, juice and all. throw in a healthy dollop of good mayonnaise, duke's or hellman's are good choices. then hit it with a 1/2 teaspoon salt, dash of pepper and a pinch of sugar. pulse a few times to get the consistency you want. you might need to add more mayo. keep tasting and adjusting your seasonings as well. don't taste while you pulse, it's not a good idea. i like mine somewhat smooth, but still able to identify the pimentos. don't pulverize the mixture. transfer to a bowl, cover and keep cold. this neon orange love is great stuffed into celery, piled high on saltines, or grilled on buttered white bread till nice and melty. enjoy.
