- 2 c 8 oz shredded smoked gouda (a 8 oz block of cheese will yield approximatley 2 cups grated cheese)

- 1/2 c mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp celery seeds
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 jar chopped pimentos drained
Don't use the pre-shredded cheese. I like to shred one cheese or the small side of the grater and the other on the large side. It's just a personal preference, but makes a difference in the texture. Mix grated cheeses with cream cheese, mayonnaise, and next four ingredients. Stir to combine well. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any unused spread.
