Review of Homemade Pimento Cheese Recipe

Saw this recipe for

Homemade Pimento Cheese

 on facebook the other night

it brought back memories

 because I had made this before and L.O.V.E.D. IT!

 2 Cups of Sharp Cheddar
8 oz. of softened Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup of Mayo
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeded and minced
1 (4 oz.) Jar of Pimento, drained
Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)

Are you THAT person, like me, who can't follow anything (especially a recipe) or anybody?

except Jesus and Momma, of course 

It's not that I can't follow, I can...but
I don't always have the "called-for" ingredients
I improvise
Everybody got time for dat! 

Didn't have garlic power, used garlic salt (hence no regular salt added)

Didn't have onion powder (we love onion so i used the real thing about 1/4 cup)

Used 3 cups sharp cheddar (yum)

Was really undecided about using jalapeno but I did...which means I washed my hands 24 times instead of the usual 12 while cooking.

Throw it all in a bowl and mix

give it the spoon test

it's gotta stand straight and tall
I don't like runny pimento cheese

 Then...Do a taste test

 You can keep your right eye all the way open while tasting
I just can't seem to manage it 


 Have you made this? What's your review?

The Happy Handicap


  1. I've actually never had pimento cheese before but looks really simple to make! I improvise all the time too. Love the quick shout out to Jesus ;). Yes, I will always follow him..may be tough at times but I sure will do my best!

    1. You're in for a treat! It is simple and oh so good! if, you like cheese. Jesus is my bread and breakfast, lunch and dinner. You get the point, right? Thanks for visiting.
