It’s Throwback Thursday…
So, let’s throw back to when we were kids we ate the hell outta some pimento cheese. Well, ok, I didn’t eat the hell out of it, but I did eat it. I haven’t been that much of a fan as an adult, but every now and then I want a little. And, of course, it has to have my spiciness thrown in there.
I mean, why would you want it any other way?
Pimento cheese has been a Southern staple for a long time, slathered on white bread and cut into quarters for baby showers, wedding teas and other shit like that. For me it needs something extra – like jalapenos, and more than one type of cheese. I like to use sharp white cheddar combined with mild cheddar – it gives it a nice depth. Also, shredding the cheese yourself is key. I know it’s a pain in the ass, but it’s worth it in the end.
I happen to have a current obsession with Cabot’s Farmhouse Reserve White Cheddar. It’s officially cheese crackedness.
Put this on crackers, dip chips in it, and of course make a sandwich or grilled cheese with it. I had an idea, which as a matter of fact I’ll probably do tonight – to stuff it in burgers and jalapenos!! I’m gonna have a busy night…
