Pimento Cheese Spread is crazy good, super addicting, and a quick and easy appetizer! It’s a must-have at football parties, as well as Christmas and New Year’s! It’s a serious winner!
The first time my sister-in-law shared this cheese spread with us, we fell in love! I loved it and the ol’ hubby REALLY loved it. He loves it so much that he loses all self-control when I make it.
In my attempt to make sure I get my share, I whip up a batch while he’s gone. Then I store it in an empty Greek yogurt or Cool Whip container.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who saves millions of those things. I save each one with good intentions of sharing my scrumptious casseroles and such with my elderly neighbors. I have good intentions that don’t materialize, and I have about two boxes full of empty cottage cheese containers! It’s the thought that counts…right?
Anyway, back to the cheese spread. I make it and put it in an old container because my hubby won’t ever look in there. This is how I make sure I get my fair share of the divine and highly coveted cheese spread!
Yes, I’m greedy like that…and he loves it that much and can’t contain himself when he knows it’s in the fridge!
Seriously, it’s so easy to make this copycat Kraft pimento cheese spread. I lightened up this version from the original recipe by using lower-fat cream cheese. I’m not saying it’s fat-free, but every little bit helps!
We love it spread on crackers or celery sticks. Okay, I like it on celery sticks and the boys like it on crackers. That is they like it on crackers after they find out I’m hiding it in a cottage cheese container!
Eventually, I determine that I’ve had my share of the coveted pimento cheese dip and let my secret out! So whether you are planning on sharing or keeping the whole thing to yourself, you need to make this soon.
Seriously, it’s perfect for watching football games! Just save a little back for yourself because it will go fast! Just a little friendly advice:)
