Southern Pimento Cheese

With ample seasonings and just a little kick, creamy Southern pimento cheese is great with everything from crackers or burgers to crab cakes or grits! This cheddar cheese spread also makes a great cold party appetizer dip that doesn’t require the oven.
When my parents were newlyweds, they decided they wanted to move from Michigan to the East coast. They marked a bunch of cities on a map and took a road trip, stopping in each one to get a feel for the city. 

When they got to Charleston, they knew it was the one. And I can’t blame them. 
I’ve been proud to call Charleston my hometown and South Carolina my home. And I think the fact that I very easily could have not been born here, or in the South at all, makes me appreciate and embrace it all the more.
And so the South has had much more of an impact on my culinary taste and repertoire than I’ve even realized until I started this blog. 
I love my sweet tea, fried chicken, grits, and okra. In my book, no other barbecue sauce can compare to South Carolina mustard-based barbecue. The blog has featured three meat and okra gumbo, and pickled okra straight from my garden. 
And today, I give you Southern pimento cheese.
