There are few foods as Southern as pimento cheese. While everyone’s granny probably makes “the best” pimento cheese, there’s no doubt that the most famous version is the $1.50 pimento cheese sandwich served every April at the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
If you can’t make it to Augusta National, here’s how to make one at home.
3 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded yellow sharp cheddar cheese
4 oz crumbled blue cheese
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (4-oz) jar sliced pimentos, drained
1 cup light mayo
2 tbs Dijon mustard
1 loaf of white bread
Combine cheeses, pimentos, mayo and mustard in a food processor and process until smooth. Cover and chill. Spread on bread slices. Makes four sandwiches.
