Pimento Cheese If You Please, Knock Me to My Knees…

A batch of this will last for at least a week in the fridge.  My friends from the south grew up eating this sharp and cheesy delight at cocktail parties and holidays, and my peeps from the north are captivated by its bright orangey/pink hue.   You have to try it on burgers, straight up, no ketchup needed.

Pink ‘n Juicy

Pimento Cheese

8oz sharp white cheddar, shredded

8oz yellow cheddar, shredded

7 oz. jar of Pimentos, drained and rinsed

2/3 cup mayo

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon hot sauce (or more to taste)

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more to taste)

Black pepper

Combine all ingredients in the food processor and pulse to combine.  You will want the consistency to be somewhere between chunky and smooth.  Taste for seasoning.  Store in an airtight container for one week in the fridge.

Brie Burgers!

Our burgers start with the prime meat mix (50% sirloin, 50% chuck) straight from Pam the Butcher at Wagshalls in Spring Valley.  With a light hand, the meat should be shaped into 1/2 pound patties, seasoned simply with S&P, cooked perfectly to 140 degrees and smothered in Brie.  Seriously, Brie might be the best burger topping ever.

Does it get any better?

Oh yes…it does
