When I was a kid, my mother often made pimento cheese sandwiches for my school lunch. I loved ‘em.
I hadn’t thought of them in years, until today. I’m going to have to make some!
Look about you.
some of our grocery stores sell "palmetto cheese" and it's got a little bit of spice/kick to it. We like it a lot at my house.
Daughter always says "yum" when she sees that I've brought home a container.
My mom makes her own pimento cheese and it's pretty good - creamier than store bought.
Make a grilled sandwich with pimento cheese and a slice of spam !!
Ah Pimento Cheese Sammich's the world renowned favorite of The Masters!
I have enjoyed them for years, being from the proper south, along with fried bologna sammichs...
SIL brought out the Pawleys Island pimento and jalapeno spread, well, you can't really call Pawleys Island spread, more like glue, it's about the only Pimento I don't really care for, too thick, but a lot of folks like it... Flavor is good.
Now I gotta go get some....
Some good discussion and recipes from back in February here --> http://sigforum.com/eve/forums...0601935/m/8930069664
If Some is Good, and More is Better.....then Too Much, is Just Enough !!
I'm in for the Karma!
Seriously, that February thread lead me into a nice cheezy rabbit hole that my waistline still hasn't recovered from.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

Palmetto cheese on toast is good.
A grilled Palmetto cheese sandwich is better.
There is nothing finer!
I forgot all about them. As a kid, we would go to the growers market on Saturday. It was always a treat to get some.

I just had one.
The Pimento cheese Bojangles sells from time to time is really good.
Time for a re-supply, used the last of mine up Saturday afternoon.
Not much better than a good pimento cheese recipe. Cracker spread, even better as a grilled cheese.
Like many things I thought were odd when I moved to rural South Carolina, pimento cheese and boiled peanuts are things I crave daily.

It seems to me that any law that is not enforced and can't be enforced weakens all other laws.
Love it and always have for as long as I can remember. My Dad got me hooked, he was from N.C.

Yup. I get some good Pimento Cheese here in Georgia, but not like back in Louisville.
I also miss Benedictine. https://www.allrecipes.com/rec...-benedictine-spread/

Grew up eating Pimento Cheese sammies, and Benedictine also.
I eat pimento cheese sammies, or put pimento cheese on things quite often.
Benedictine, well that was kinda forgotten, until this past Christmas Eve. I was invited to a little get together. I usually don't go to these things, but since I was already going to Christmas Eve Mass, and the get together was semi formal, and I was dressed up in my Kilt, I figured why not?!?
So I went, they had horderves and one of them was Benedictine tea sandwiches.
I had forgotten how much I liked Benedictine.
It also brought me back, to when I was a kid, and mom would make Benedictine sammies as a light lunch or even dinner in the summer when it was just so hot, you didn't really want to eat, but was hungry.
Funny, how little things can do that.
couldn’t find pimento cheese. found hatch chili cheddar. close enough? what kind of cheese is used for pimento cheese?

From the link in my OP:
“The basic recipe has few ingredients: sharp cheddar cheese or processed cheese (such as Velveeta or American cheese), mayonnaise or salad dressing, and pimentos, blended to either a smooth or chunky paste.”
My mother used American cheese, I think, but I’ll use a good cheddar – Westminster Rustic Red. A cheddar with a difference – described in this link:

Pimento cheese is usually a blend of cheddar cheese, cream cheese, pimentos peppers, mayo, and spices. Some recipes vary a bit from that combo.
It's a paste/spread, not a block of cheese made with peppers embedded like pepper jack or hatch chile cheddar.

Grilled Palmetto Cheese with bacon is outta this world...especially with a fresh sliced garden tomato
For store bought...Palmetto Cheese brand is my favorite ...
My father in law (RIP) made an outstanding blend (it probably made me want his daughter that much more )...she could replicate his recipe to a tee!
