I always toast my bread first. It's yucky on cold bread.

Also beware of PIMENTO SPREAD. It has all sorts of gross things in it. You want to go ahead and make it with real cheddar cheese. But if you have to buy it get Pimento CHEESE.

Me, too. I can't believe some people have never heard of it! Absolutely had no idea.

What exactly IS pimento cheese? I can't stomach Miracle Whip, so I probably wouldn't like it, but made with mayo I might.

And, NK, we had one of those grinders that clamped to the table when I was growing up! My brother ended up with it, I keep wishing I had it. I see them at flea markets and antique stores and always want to buy one, but they're usually overpriced.

Sharp cheddar, mayonnaise, and pimentos all mixed up!

We had one of those grinders too.

mayo 1/4 to 1/2 cup
a small amount of grated onion (which I don't use, because I can't eat onions)

Using a mixer, cream the cream cheese and add in the cheddar. Add in pimento and onion, and then add in mayo till it's as loose as you want it. It will stiffen up in the fridge, so take that into account. taste -- and add a little pimento juice if you need it a little peppier.

It's SO good.... and it's the best thing to stuff celery with.

As for Miracle Whip -- my aunt had a killer recipe for potato salad, and you HAD to use Miracle Whip - it was gross with mayo.

Got some chiiling in the fridge for this afternoons games.

And HELL NO to the MW

Made mine with mayo and spiced it up with additional ingredients to get that spicy and hint of sweet flavor without the (bleeeech) MW.
