My son and I love pimento cheese and enjoy making it from scratch because it's so easy. We like a tiny amount of heat with ours and this recipe's 'heat' can easily be adjusted up or down. The Worcestershire Sauce adds an extra layer of flavor that we feel rounds out what is missing from many pimento cheese recipes. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
