Today is all about comfort food. It is cold outside. Oh Baby, is it cold outside! I don't know why but when the mercury dips and the snow is flying, I immediately crave what I call comfort food. Food that I grew up with as a kid. Pimento cheese is one of those comfort foods. It evokes memories of child hood and good memories. We didn't have pimento cheese often, and when we did have it, it came from the deli at the grocery store. However, I decided I'd make mine from scratch. I had all the ingredients and it saved me from a special trip to the store. I had mine with a salad and made up as grilled cheese. This is a simple recipe. It is versatile and can be a simple spread for crackers or slathered on bread for a sandwich, but why not make it extra special and make a grilled cheese!
1 4 ounce jar of pimentos
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons Worchestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
In a large mixing bowl, stir together all of the ingredients except the shredded cheese.
Using either a box shredder or fit your food processor with the shredding blade and shred the cheese.
Add the shredded cheese to the well blended mayonnaise mixture. Stir, mixing all ingredients thoroughly.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving so flavors have an opportunity to meld.
