I was raised in the south and that meant lots of Pimento Cheese sandwiches all summer long.  My grandpa made the best pimento cheese with sharp cheddar, miracle whip, and diced pimentos.  I am changing mine up a bit by using mayo and chopped bacon.  Everything is better with bacon, right?

HOW TO MAKE PIMENTO CHEESE WITH BACON

Before you get started you need to cook and crumble your thick cut bacon.  I have even used store bought bacon crumbles (don’t judge).  They were just as good and made this recipe even easier!

Now grate your sharp cheddar cheese into a large bowl.

Next you need to add your drained diced pimento’s.

Now just add your mayonnaise and crumbled bacon.

Salt and Pepper to taste and mix well.

You can even add more mayonnaise to achieve desired texture.

Calories: 285kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 8 ounces Diced pimentos, drained
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 5 slices Thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Grate your sharp cheddar cheese in a bowl.
  • Add your diced pimentos, mayonnaise and crumbled bacon. Mix well. Add more mayo to achieve the consistency you like.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with sliced vegetables, as a sandwich spread, or with pork rinds!

Notes

  • Grate your own cheese: I much prefer grating my own cheese for this recipe as pre-grated cheeses have a starch coating and it changes the texture of the pimento cheese.
  • Sharp or mild cheddar: I prefer sharp cheddar cheese as that is how I was raised.  Mild cheddar works just as well, though.
  • Miracle Whip or Mayo: I was raised with Miracle Whip in my pimento cheese but that is not something that I keep in my house now.  I much prefer Mayo now.  Either works!

    This was just delicious! I made it for a part and served it with celery sticks and toast points for those not doing low carb. It was a big hit!
