Hold the Crackers: 9 Creative Ideas for Pimento Cheese
We love (good!) pimento cheese, but the classic, same-ol' cheese and cracker duo can leave us feeling...well, cracked-out. Luckily, the folks at Bourbon and Boots came up with nine inspired and inventive ways to use the yummy spreadable, so you can finally get off the cracker.
Pimento cheese — a delicacy made with mayo, pimento peppers and cheese and sometimes called the “caviar of the South” — is much more versatile than you ever imagined. Sure it tastes great on crackers and smeared between two slices of bread, but pimento cheese deserves so much more. It could serve as breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert, but we haven’t seen evidence that anyone has made it into a pie … yet. Start looking for places you’d melt cheese and the possibilities are endless.
