Savory Southern Pimento Cheese

This recipes takes me back to being a kid. We always had pimento cheese in the refrigerator, and it was always homemade. My Mom didn’t make it this way but even she admitted to me that this recipe was better than the way she made it.

I loved this recipe and let me tell you I got nothing but rave review from everyone who tried it. They all thought it was as fantastic as I did. Please don’t settle for what’s in the grocery store. Most of those pimento cheese spreads don’t even use real cheese imagine that!

This is one of those recipe I can’t imagine living without and it’s even Weight Watchers friendly for those who are interested. 3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus Point for 2 tablespoon.
