  • 2 cups shredded smoked gouda
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar/Colby mix
  • 4 -ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt optional
  • 4 -ounce 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.
  • Try these options: Grilled Pimento and Cheese, on a hamburger, heated and served as a dip.
  • Variations: add 1/2 chopped pecans and 1/2 diced pepperoncini¬†or jalapeno¬†peppers
