Pimento Cheese Spread, tasty Southern recipe for pimiento cheese sandwiches.
Pimento Cheese Spread
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. This Pimento Cheese Spread recipe is one of our kids’ favorites. Don’s mom, Momma Betty, made it frequently. She was a big fan of mayonnaise. In fact, when she made a sandwich, she said, “Just slather it on!” Pimento Cheese Spread is especially good on Dillie Bread.
This is quick and easy to make—especially if you have a food processor to shred/chop the cheese. We always keep a small jar of pimentos in our pantry in case we want to whip some up. It makes a terrific appetizer or party food, too.
It’s a scrumptious addition to any picnic. Pack some in your lunch when you hike at the Shenandoah National Park.
What You Need
I use my small food processor to make this Cheese Spread. It’s perfect. And of course, pimentos.

Creamy cheese spread with a little bite.
- Prep Time: 15 minutes

- 8 drops of Tabasco Sauce
- Mix all of the ingredients.

Note: I strongly suggest you shred your own cheese instead of buying prepackaged shredded cheese. The packaged cheese is coated with an anti-caking mixture to keep it from spoiling or clumping and it makes it dry.
