Pug's Pimento Cheese

My grandmother Peggy, who I reference on this blog often as Mamaw, grew up with everyone calling her Pug. Now that I'm thinking about it, out of her sisters, they all have nicknames. My great aunt Kathy is Kat and my great aunt Betty goes by Beck. All three are great cooks so I guess its no wonder I love to cook. Mamaw makes pimento cheese that is a southern staple with a little twist. This will in no way be the only pimento cheese recipe I put on this blog because I am constantly intrigued by variations that seem good. To start us off though, here is a heavily requested comfort food by my family and others. If someone has a baby, you should take this. If someone dies, take their family this. If work sucks, take this to the office. Just take it places. People will like you better. You will like yourself better. Trust me.

10 oz can Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, drained
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
16 oz. sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (don't buy pre-shredded)
4 oz. jar diced pimentos, drained

Stir together first four ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in cheese and pimentos. Serve with crackers, veggies, or on a sandwich.


  1. Ooooh I'm very excited about this one!!!

  2. A southern staple for sure! I can't wait to try Mamaw's recipe.
