pimento cheese

The recipe this Friday is actually one for Grilled Dry-Rubbed Rib-Eye Steaks. I’m not a red meat eater and I was too lazy to post about the Pimento Cheese last month, so I’m just gonna tell you about that right now. I’d never made pimento cheese before, but there’s nothing to it. Blitz some sharp cheddar (I had some orange and some white), mayo, pimentos and chile powder in the food processor, and there you have it. I actually used sour cream instead of mayonnaise and threw in otherwise useless little blob of cream cheese into the mix. Zippy and bright orange, this was great with saltines and a beer.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see all of the steaks (I didn’t make) this week.

  1. I made this cheese spread for the first time. Pimento does have something to offer. Beautiful color!

  2. I had never made it before either…wasn’t it so good?!! I actually made it a second time for guests because it went over so well the first time haha!

  3. Very nice photo. Zippy and bright sound like good adjectives. I can relate to the lazy factor:)
