Make Augusta National's Pimento Cheese Sandwich

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.


You'll need:

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.

From the book Par 3 Tea-Time at the Masters by the Junior League of Augusta, Ga., available on Amazon.
