I completely fell in love with homemade pimento cheese the first of many times I had it down south. This version is so incredibly flavorful, simple to make, and can be used in many different ways!

step 2
Then add 1/4 cup of either the homemade mayo or jarred Mayo and stir it in to bring Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese (2 cups), Pimiento Pepper (1 jar), and Scallion (1 cup) together.
step 3
Set aside any homemade mayo left, there will be about 3/4 cup left, sealed in the fridge for further use. Seal up the pimento cheese too and use it in countless ways! It's a fantastic dip on its own, grilled cheese filling or burger topping. Enjoy!
