The onion amt. is in error. Either the writer used a sweet vidalia onion (my guess) or they lost their tongue in the war. Use 2T or less grated raw onion or you suffer onion overkill. Traditionally in the south this is made with Velveeta cheese which is why folks my not find it tasting like mom made. It makes the recipe taste sweeter. Read More

Not at all what I was expecting: I was looking for a cheesy filling/spread for my sandwiches and I got a yellowy onion smelling mush. I tried to eat it though but I couldn't have a second bite: I was feeling like munching in an onion. The good point is my girlfriend wasn't close to me at that time (actually nobody was close to me) for I think she might have wanted to break up with me only because of my breath;). I may have done a mistake but I think a whole raw onion for a pound of cheese is WAY too much. Sorry. Read More

This isn't like th stuff you buy in the stores it's BETTER!!! Quick and easy with a great flavor. Just enough mayo to incorporate everything not overpower the pimento and other flavors. Read More

I liked the recipe. I have tried it with cream cheese before and think it would be a nice addition to this recipe. I read the reviews before making and also reduced the onion to about 2 tbsp. I added more mayo also. Maybe a bit too much because I didn't drain the pimentos because I like the extra flavor it adds. Read More

I absolutely love this spread. I have never liked the pimento cheese that you buy at the store and until 1999 had naever had any I liked. A co-worker gave me this recipe and I have been making it every since.... Read More

Not what I was expecting. This did not go over well at all. It certainly did not taste like mom's pimento cheese. I had to promise my husband to pitch this recipe. Sorry. Read More

Awesome recipe. I like mine a little spicy so I dump a tablespoon of red pepper flakes in it. Awesome! Read More
