The Special Ingredient To Take Your Pimento Cheese To The Next Level
By MEGGAN ROBINSON
Shaking up signature recipes with unexpected ingredients and complimentary flavors is no new game, and pimento cheese is no exception. From adding red peppers to serving on focaccia, there are multiple ways you can spice up this delicious spreadable cheese.
Gift of Hospitality's Kate Shungu has a brilliant take on this cheesy dish, and it involves adding shredded cheddar cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise, chives, and some seasoning. To this classic mixture, add some crispy fried, crumbled bacon and some smoked paprika.
The texture from the crunchy bacon and the smokiness makes this pimento cheese recipe just heavenly, and it's great served as a dip with pita chips and fresh veggies as an appetizer. Check out the YouTube Tasting Table video to see the entire procedure.
