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


  • 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!


  • 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!
