Superb Pimento Cheese Spread

That is right another pimento cheese spread recipe, except for this one is WAY better than the last one, and it is a lot closer in taste to the ever so famous and amazing pimento cheese spread from Russel Street BBQ.  This process began with Becca and I reviewing about 4 or 5 recipes to combine the most perfect recipe for this wonderful feat.  I will say that the longer the spread sits in the fridge (like overnight) the more amazing it tastes.  So here is the recipe, and mind you this is a great treat to indulge in especially for college football games, GO DUCKS!

The Ingredients
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup Monterey cheese, grated
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup pimentos (from the jar)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 small yellow onion, grated (or we actually re-hydrated dried onion bits but I bet fresh onion is better)
Black Pepper to taste, we used a lot
Stone Ground Wheat Crackers

The Process
1.  In a small bowl mix together the red wine vinegar and pimentos.

2.  In medium bowl mix together everything else, then add pimento mixture.

3.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour, but for best results but in fridge overnight.

4.  Serve on the wheat crackers, although little crostinis are amazing too!

Also I am super excited because I am leaving for Infocamp Seattle tonight, it is an amazing "non-conference" full of wonderful presentations and people!
