|Pimiento Cheese Spread|
Pâté of the South is what this delicious Pimiento Cheese Spread is often called. You can find it in grocery stores or you can make it yourself. I like making my own. It is very simple to make and requires little time. Two different types of cheese are used, extra-sharp Cheddar, and sharp cheddar. I used Cracker Barrel brand cheese when I make my spread. I love the flavor this brand of cheese has.
Another important ingredient used is mayonnaise. It is advised that you use a high quality mayonnaise. To begin making this spread you combine the mayonnaise, diced pimiento, Worcestershire sauce, the onion, and the red pepper in a bowl. Next you stir in the cheese. That's it. Your spread is ready to eat.
