Steve and I had an afternoon wine and cheese party this past weekend at our house to welcome our new residents to Serenbe. In the last 6 months, we have had over 20 new residents move in. It is always great to have new energy on the streets.
"I think nothing is better than Pimento Cheese for a nibble to go along with homemade lemonade and wine. I serve Pimento cheese as one of the rotating cheeses we serve at tea time in the afternoon at the Inn. And do people love it!!"
Pimento cheese is one of those quintessential Southern dishes served at parties. Every southern cookbook has a recipe.
I like mine with a little kick so we add cayenne and Tabasco to the mix. Of course feel free to add more or less depending on your taste. And always be sure to serve it with crackers and celery.
- 3 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup diced pimento
- 1 oz. cream cheese
- 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/8 teaspoon cayennes
- 1/4 teaspoon tabasco
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mixed well with hands until cream cheese is incorporated into mixture.
