Smoked Pimento Cheese

Pimento cheese spread is served on small rolls.

Pimento cheese is a popular spread combining pimentos, cheese, and mayonnaise. This is Marks’ outdoor variation that uses smoked cheese and is seasoned with a touch of your favorite herb rub. You can spread this creamy condiment on sandwiches or use it as a dip.

You can find pimentos in a can or jar. Pimentos are the lowest heat chilies and are similar to bell peppers with their sweet flavor. If you do like things with a little spice, add some pickled jalapeño peppers. 

If you don’t have or don’t like smoked Gouda, swap it out with smoked cheddar cheese, or use a combination of the two for extra-cheesy flavor.
