Roasted Red Pepper Pimento Cheese

A lovely pimento cheese made with roasted red peppers.

Roasted Red Pepper Pimento Cheese

I don't what it is about pimento cheese, but I sure love it.

Yeah, I even like the stuff in the little containers in the refrigerator case at the market, though I admit, homemade is so much more delicious, and just super easy to throw together.

A southern favorite, and of course, like most traditional and old fashioned recipes, every southern cook has their own way of making it too. I happen to have a couple of my own, but I love this one that replaces those little jars of chopped pimiento peppers with flavorful roasted red peppers.

Traditional in the contrasting bend of a celery stick, it's the perfect filling for little tea sandwiches for parties too, and it'd be rare to find any leftover.

Makes a pretty darned good grilled cheese sandwich too.

Be sure to grate your own cheddar though - there are fillers in the pre-shredded stuff, and freshly grated just makes for a much creamier spread.
