My husband grew up dining on pimiento cheese – it is his comfort food and something he fondly associates with his Grandmother.
Although it’s not something I would ever venture to buy, he will often pick up a container for outdoor occasions – camping or a day on the Lake.
I’ve never been all that impressed when I’ve sampled the store bought kind, but I made up a batch of this zesty pimiento cheese for a family RV trip, and it was a favorite snack. It was delicious and full of flavor, unlike the ones I have tried before.

Stir in 5 cups freshly grated white cheddar cheese until well blended. Cover and chill 8 to 24 hours, spread between two slices of bread.
