Pimento Cheese Spread
Alright as I have warned you in the past, there will be some fat kid recipes on my blog, because I mean truly who isn't one at heart....I mean seriously. So here we go. This is inspired by Russell Street BBQ, every so often...well more often than not my wonderful friend Rebecca (who has an amazing food blog too) and I go to Russell Street BBQ to grab a drink and their oh so awesome pimento cheese spread. Now the other day we had one of our rendezvous after a shitty monday at work, and we got our typical drinks and we about to order the pimento cheese spread....but no they were all out. Before I almost lost my shit we decided on the Frito chili pie, while it was good I still had to have two cocktails to make up for it. So since then I have been craving the pimento cheese goodness like no other and I decided to make it, knowing of coarse that it wouldn't be as good as Russell St. and guess what I was right....but still this version was pretty damn good. So make this and get fat and be happy:)
From Paula Deen
makes 3 cups (i.e. more than enough)
3 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sharp cheddar, grated
1 cup monterey jack, grated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon House seasoning (recipe follows)
3 tablespoons pimentos, diced
2 teaspoons grated onion
1. Mix together cream cheese, cheddar, monterey jack, mayo, pimentos, grated onion, and house seasoning.
2. Serve on mini garlic toasts.
1/2 cup salt
1/8 cup black pepper
1/8 cup garlic powder
I will say that it is a pretty salty recipe even for my likings (and i love salt), so be weary.
