You can find Irish dubliner cheese in the deli section of the grocery store. It is the most important ingredient in the recipe! It is has a sharp zing to it almost like parmesan that is essential to the overall taste. It can be expensive ($6 for a block) but I get it when it is on sale (usually 40 or 50 % off) and freeze it. Also, it is cheaper at Trader Joe’s if you are lucky enough to have one.
Mix it together. Use less mayo than you think you need at first because you can always add more. The right consistency is dependent upon your individual taste. I like mine a little thick and dense so I use less mayo. Some people like a looser spread so more mayo it is. You can’t go wrong either way!
Dump in the roasted red peppers. Mine are diced into chunks because I’m a roasted red pepper fan. They are similar to pimentos but pack a little more of a punch in my opinion.
Of course you can eat it cold on a hot summer day. I love pimento cheese in celery or on crackers. Make a cold plate with sliced tomato and you are golden. Pimento cheese toast rocks also. As does pimento cheese stuffed chicken but that is another recipe for another day.
Thanks to Rhoda for her summer recipe party! It starts tomorrow so make sure you check out all the yummy goodness at Southern Hospitality!
