I forgot how good pimiento cheese sandwiches were. I have been eating them almost every day for the last week or so. mmmmmm

I never could stand that pimiento cheese from the grocery store, and always thought I didn't like it. At a party one time I discovered the joys of homemade. Something made almost entirely of cheese and mayo? Hell yeah!
Holiday Hams here has the best pimiento cheese anywhere. You can make yourself sick eating that stuff. It's horribly addictive.
PC stuffed into celery stalks is great, and a fine old southern tradition. You can mix it up by putting those in millionaire's lunch instead of peanut butter stuffed celery.

I like PC and sourdough.

Use diced jalapenos and pimentos in it, as well as a blend of cheddar and jack cheese too. Sorta like so:

One jalapeno adds a pleasant tang and bite; chile lovers may want to use two. If the pimentos or the roasted red bell peppers are mild, use the larger amount.

1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
4 to 6 ounces jarred pimentos, drained and chopped, or 1/2 to 3/4 chopped roasted red bell peppers
1/2 cup good-quality mayonnaise
1/4 cup minced green onions (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 pickled or fresh jalapeno (seeded if desired), minced, or more to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix very thoroughly. For best results, cover and chill overnight to allow flavors to blend.

I like mine on toast too.

Here's how I make mine. I tweaked a friend's recipe:

1 lb. finely grated extra sharp cheddar
1 lg jar diced pimentoes & juice
garlic salt (or powder if you're not a salt fan)
white pepper
lots o' dill weed
mayo ('til you get the right consistency)
spoonful of sambal
optional diced green olives

You can add more mayo later if needed. This one ain't for those who like their PC sweet!

I've been wondering what the "real" stuff tasted like. It's one of my favorite gross/over processed foods (like the occassional craving for spaghetti-o's)

Maybe I'll try one of these.

I totally forgot about the pimiento and celery - thanks Alisa!

What is sambal?

You'd know if you ever saw the True Sons Of Thunder.

There's actually home-made pimento cheese? Weird.

I'm guessing they're talking about Sambal Oelek. Chiles all mashed up

That's the stuff. You know, I just found out the other day that 'sambal' is really a term for any type of chutney-like condiment.

HAHA! Good one! Or two...

I dunno too much about those Asian languages myself.

I've found a few of different sauces that start with tuong ot.

Sriracha is the most common, I forget the name of the other couple sauces I've seen with the tuong ot prefix.

i LOVE their pimento cheese spread. shit is so damn good, it's insane. i could gorge myself on it easily. i am so glad they're putting a holiday hams in midtown. i'm kind of weirded out that it is in the old minor med building though. toxic.
