This is a recipe that has been recreated from an award-winning recipe for pimento cheese found at our local farmers' market. You won't be disappointed. It's even better if it sits for a day in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to blend.

I made this exactly by the recipe except I left out the red onion because of other reviewers' comments. There was still entirely too much onion flavor. It really overpowered the cheese taste. Read More

I was looking for a recipe that would be close to the one I get at the Tuesday farmer's market here in Houston. I was AMAZED at this recipe's flavor. It tasted exactly like the one from the market only better! I was very pleased with this recipe and will continue to use it as often as I can. Read More

This is such a great recipe. I have always really liked the concept of pimento cheese but usually find the execution to be mediocre. This version is not overly sweet and doesn't overdose on mayo. The onions add a great kick. Give it a shot! Read More

I love this as a base, but I used 3 T. light mayo and only 1 T of worcestershire sauce. I am not a huge pimento fan, so I used roasted red peppers to sub. I also added a little yellow mustard and a few drops of hot sauce. Love it!( Okay, I changed it a tad.. :) ) Read More

I was very pleased with this recipe! I am a pimento cheese fan, only homemade, no store bought. I was a tiny bit nervous about the white cheddar, but I absolutely loved it! The onions give it a great splash of taste. Cannot wait to eat it for lunch today! Read More

This recipe had way too much onion in it though it was a good base. I added about 1/2 cup sour cream and 1tbs sugar to cut the onion flavor. Tasted great after the additions...love the white cheddar. Read More
