First, let's just say the original recipe called for waaay too many pimentos. Yeah, I know, it is pimento cheese, but really! We all know the good stuff is the cheese and goo (aka the salad dressing). Who needs a vegetable in there?? Ha ha. Joking (I really do LOVE vegetables!). Second, the husband (for whom the pimento cheese was requested by) does not like sharp cheddar cheese. Third, I really didn't have colby cheese either, or much of it. So, yeah know, I did what I do...I changed it to my liking. After all, I think that is what makes cooking, well, cooking.
This is super fast to fix! This was ready in oh...say 5 minutes! Why in the world would anybody buy store-bought stuff when the homemade stuff is so much better AND super easy. Now, I know my "easy" is not everyone's definition of easy when it comes to cooking. But trust me, this one really is.
Simple Pimento Cheese Recipe (how I made it):
1 cup Miracle Whip (light)
3 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
4 oz jar of pimentos, drained
salt & pepper to taste
1) Mix all together until combined. Serve as sandwiches or with celery or chips. Yum!
