Pimento Cheese

Pimento cheese is one of the true joys of Southern food. It is a versatile food, eaten as an appetizer on crackers, as a sandwich on white bread, either plain, toasted, or grilled, and as a burger topping.
This recipe is adapted from one by a legendary Southern chef, the late Bill Neal.
