Some ladies I know use to make a pimento cheese spread and sell it at the Augusta National Golf Course during Masters week. The only thing I knew about their recipe was that they used bell peppers instead of pimentos. I figured the rest out on my own. My family devours it every time I make it. Serve this with crackers, or spread it on bread for a tasty sandwich.

This is SO good! I made it for my bestfriend's 40ieth birthday party & the ladies could not get enough! I did make 2 changes: I addeed a clove of minced garlic & used whipped cream cheese instead of mayo simply bcz I am not a mayo fan. This is best make a day or 2 even in advance. Thanks for this delicious and different recipe! Read More

OK I have no idea what I did wrong here but this was terrible-- weird mixed texture and an oily bland mayonnaise-y flavor instead of the creamy cheesy goodness I'd been expecting. Will not make again. Read More

Oh yeah I love it using it with crackers. Made just like called for. I'll make it again. UPDATE: it is now Thanksgiving time 2017 (original review was in 2011) and purposely have returned to my favorites to get this recipe once again. It gets gone folks. Love it. Read More

Wow! Great tastes like pimento spread! I bought my favorite store brand and something is wrong with it - spoiled?I spent 6.99!! I didn't have pimentos but I did have peppers! I thought what the heck? Its great!! I don't think I'm spending 6.99 again I'll make it myself! I used light mayo! And I ate it right away! So good! Much cheaper! Thanks Kathie! Read More

Excellent!!! This spread is delicious. Whether you like store bought pimento cheese spread or not (which I really don't) you will love this. I almost didn't make it because of that. Reading the reviews & ease of recipe I decided to try it. So glad I did. Of course brand's are different every where but here are the ones I found & used from my local grocery store. OK. I made it exactly as written but like others added 1 tsp. minced refrigerated garlic from the jar. Also just to make incorporation easier & even I put the 3/4 cup (reg. Hellmans) in a meas. cup added the 1/2 cup diced roasted red peppers (Mezzetta) on top & stirred in the worcestershire & minced garlic. I used Sargentino's fancy shredded sharp cheddar since my food processer isn't working and just used a hand beater to meld the mixture into dip texture. So quick & good. Thanks for the recipe!!

Very good. People I served it to told me it tasted just like Pimiento Cheese (which I've never had) so I think this recipe accomplishes its goal. Read More

Love this recipe but I did change just slightly. I added 6 oz of cream cheese 1 tablespoon of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of minced green onions and processed in my food processor until smooth. Delicious on everything! Read More
