I’m stepping away from the cake today to share a super easy snack or lunch idea! One of my most favorite things growing up was eating a Pimento Cheese Sandwich. As far as I can remember, my Mama always got the store-bought variety and the truth is… I loved it. But then a few years ago I had it homemade. And ya’ll… it was all over. I’m now hopelessly addicted to Homemade Pimento Cheese.
I would probably still not hesitate to eat a big ole pile of pre-made kind, but if I have my choice, homemade it is! And now? I’ll eat it on a sandwich, on a cracker… or goodness… straight off the spoon!
So before writing this, I decided to do a little search of recipes and here’s the conclusion I came to… mine is really, really simple. Like, really simple.
But you know what? I didn’t change my recipe based on all the variations. I decided to just share what we do because it’s easy, it’s delicious, and with the right ingredients on hand, I can have this ready in less than 5 minutes!
Just this week we’ve made it twice for lunch and my kids even fight over who gets the last bite! While I still eat it on bread for a sandwich occasionally, my favorite way to eat it these days is on crackers… butter crackers, saltine crackers… or pretty much any other cracker!
