Notes

I love using this pimento cheese for dips with crackers, roll it into a ball and coat with toasted walnuts for an easy bacon cheeseball, Baker’s Bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers with pimento cheese… yes please! Grilled cheese with pimento cheese and ham on a nice sourdough also does the trick.
