PIMIENTO CHEESE SPREAD



As a child, whenever this was available at home, it was always a "special occasion." Pimiento cheese spread was relatively expensive at that time, compared to the regular cheese spread which we brought from the grocery store. But boy, I remember slathering slices of white bread with this spread to my heart's desire each time we had it. Now, I can make it at home and have it whenever.


Try this. Another quick and easy recipe to make that will surely please your family.
