The Creamy Cheese You Need To Have Ready For Kid-Friendly Cookouts
Cookouts are wonderful occasions to gather together over good food, and if there are children present, try adding pimento cheese to the menu for a child-friendly meal.
Pimento cheese is a creamy cheese that is part spread, dip, and condiment. It works well as a kid-friendly sandwich filling, or melted atop a hamburger or hot dog.
Spicy, sharp, and creamy pimento cheese is made by mixing cheddar cheese, chopped pimento peppers, mayo, and black pepper into a spreadable cheese.
Best of all, the cheese can be put to multiple uses at a cookout, whether as a dip for chips and veggies, used as a condiment, added to sandwiches, or served over grilled meats.
Buy the cheese or make it at home. Some recipes use cream cheese, cayenne pepper, and pimento juice, or spice it up with jalapenos, cumin, and garlic.
