Any recommendations for cream-cheese haters, extra mayo?

Reed Counts says:

This is an interesting recipe. Typical recipes I’ve seen use primarily mayo instead of the use of cream cheese.

Raycefan says:

A sweet and crunch-…..what? Editing and proof watching fail.

Jake Van Ness says:

Brooklyn BasedBeauty says:

Triscuits are my all time favorite. I might have to make the pimento cheese this weekend and give it a try! Thanks for sharing! Sandra

MikeTheBarber63 says:

I have a slight variation on your recipe. At some point, likely late 1970s when I was going thru a teenage vegetarian phase, yes a girl was involved, I ate a LOT of pimento cheese. We always had green stuffed olives in the fridge, so I started using diced stuffed green olives in my spread. I also add a small amount of finely diced onions, but you have to wait a day to get full flavor, I promise it is worth the wait! As a spread sure triscuts are fantastic, but corn chips great too!

Earendilgrey says:

I need to make this so bad. My grandmother used to make it all the time but never wrote down the recipe and as you said the store bought stuff is always really sweet. I find that happens a lot, especially with like pasta sauces, they are all so sweet.

Can we use fresh pimentos ??? I wonder if it’s the same as what we call pimentos here in Trinidad

James Ren says:

It has northern roots, but really grew up and formed its identity in the south.

sonvolt48 says:

Hilah, we found a great store-bought pimento cheese at Costco…the brand is “Palmetto Cheese.” Not sweet at all and has a bit of spicy-heat to it.

Tom's Test Kitchen says:

Yum, I do love a good pimento cheese and that looked awesome. I’ve actually used it for jalapeño poppers, it’s a great combo.

Brandy Potts says:

This was delicious!! I know everyone tells you you look like Lisa but I think you look like Gweneth Paltro!!! 🙂
