Pimento Cheese Sliders are going down tomorrow!!

Oh my goodness, I just made the pimento cheese to be dalloped on sliders for the game tomorrow (Roll Tide). This stuff is ridiculously delicious; I may just stay up tonight and eat it by the spoonful.

Non Egg related; after planting a peach tree in my back yard in the morning, I am going to try frying some Wickles. Anyone have experience frying pickles???

    Best grilled cheese is shredded cheddar, pimentos, and either some cream cheese or mayo. The pimentos make all the difference!

    This is my recipe for Pimento Cheese.

    Pimento Cheese

    Servings: 10

    16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    1 jar (7 ounces) pimentos, drained
    1 1/2 cups Duke's mayonnaise
    2 teaspoons Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt
    2 teaspoons Lawry's Garlic Salt
    3 dashes Tabasco Sauce
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

    1. Blend all ingredients either by hand in a large bowl or in a food processor.

    2. If you like a “chunky” spread, mix by hand.  If you prefer a “smooth” spread, use the food processor.

    3. Adjust the salts and sauces to taste.  When this is mixed initially, it needs to be “soupy” as if you have too much mayonnaise.  The cheese will “soak up” the mayonnaise after it sets up.

    This should be made one day in advance of serving.  Use for sandwiches or as a spread for crackers. You can also use it as a dip for a vegetable tray.

    You can use a variety of cheeses in this. For example, we often use half sharp cheddar and half medium cheddar. You can also add a little bit of cream cheese that has been softened to room temperature.
