Pimiento Cheese

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love cheese. And, it only seems right that I would love pimiento cheese. But, I really don't like the premade stuff they sell in the store. This is much better and only slightly more involved than opening a container of the other stuff. I did make my own roasted pepper (which is really easy), but you could certainly use the jarred kind. So, try this pimiento cheese and go throw the other grocery store stuff out. Now.

1 8oz. package of cheddar/jack cheese
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1 roasted red pepper, diced
2 thinly sliced green onions (white and green parts)
3-4 T chopped fresh dill

To roast the red pepper: I put the red pepper over the burner on my gas stove. The outside of the of the pepper will become charred. Keep turning the pepper over the flame until the outside is all charred. Then put the pepper in a brown paper bag for about 15 minutes. The steam from the pepper will make the charred skin easier to get off. Peel the charred skin off of the pepper and dice.

For the pimiento cheese: Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!

Bon Appetit!

  2. Oh...I LOVE cheese too, any flavor. And homemade pimento cheese is my grandmother made it best, but I never got her recipe. I'll definitely have to try yours! Also going to try getting the kids to help make your Banana Pecan Waffles... :)
