    I made this today. Thought of my Dad who loved Pimiento cheese so much he made his own homemade. Wishing I could remember the recipe. It was a hit relaxing at the pool on Savoritz crisp crackers as an afternoon snack. So simple to stir up.

    Paula, what a cool post! I love how you guys put pimento cheese on your burgers over there. We always had them on cracker growing up. Now, I’m super excited to put some on a cheese burger! Over here in Utah we do the fry sauce on burgers… ketchup mixed with mayo. Shhh… it’s typically called Utah’s secret sauce. haha.
    Such pretty photos, too!

    1. I remember that fry sauce from your roasted potato post, sounds wonderful, can’t wait to try it on fries and burger!

  5. OMG. I love pimento cheese. And any kind of cheese spread, for that matter. I almost picked up some Cheddar Jack Spread from my grocery store today. It’s similar to Pimento Cheese and it’s darn delicious. Great recipe, Paula! I want some now!

    1. Thank you Julie! I love it to, I love it on crackers, sandwiches, burgers you can’t go wrong. I’d love to try the Cheddar Jack spread, sounds good!

  6. I’ve never tried pimento cheese on a hamburger but this looks so good, I will have to try it. I’m actually a big fan of Private Selection and was happy to see this here.

    1. Pimento cheese is good on anything, Matt 🙂 I like Private Selection too, be sure to enter the giveaway! Have a great day!
