While waiting to check out I happen to glance in the cold case just to the left of my shopping cart to see the grab n'go selection of sandwiches being offered this day.
Ewwwwww! Pimento Cheese!
Without thinking, I snapped a photo and posted my sarcastic comments on my personal Instagram. "Things I don't want to eat for $500"
Almost immediately, my friend Amy commented that she wasn't a fan of store bought
pimento cheese, but she loved the one her grandmother made and offered the recipe.
Two things about this recipe sold me.
1. It has horseradish as an ingredient
2. It's a family recipe with lots of history and love - always key when it comes to recipes and foods that are yummy.

- Dukes Mayo - had not used this before, may never buy another brand of mayo
- Prepared Horseradish
- Jar of Pimentos - drained
- Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese - I love this recipe with Tillamook Cheese if it's available in your area
Then I made it!
Combine shredded cheese, 2T of Dukes Mayo, 1-2T of horseradish and 1/2 jar of pimentos drained in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Adjust mayo and horseradish to taste.
Store in refer for up to 7 days. Don't feel compelled to eat it all at one setting, it actually gets better with each day that passes!
YUM! I love it on King's Hawaiian Rolls for a savory sweet taste or on crackers, Whole Foods Everything Crackers or the basic Ritz. It's delish and addictive!
As I posted a few months later - I cannot believe I actually crave this now.
I hope you give it a try!
