A Southern Thing

We had the great fortune to be invited to a cookout last weekend where we met two lovely documentary filmmakers who recently completed a short film titled Pimento Cheese, Please!  which is kind of a love poem to this southern delicacy.  Did I have the nerve to make a batch and take it?   You bet I did.  It was very well received (they took home the leftovers).  I thought I’d share the recipe here.  It’s pretty simple stuff, just 5 ingredients; 8 oz. of sharp cheddar cheese,  3 Tbsp. of Duke’s mayo, 2 0z. of drained pimentos, 2 good splashes of worchestershire sauce and hot pepper flakes to taste.   Oh, and salt & pepper.  It’s best served on a saltine cracker.  Go ahead and make some, you know you want to.  And while you’re at it, have a look at their short film, it’s awesome!   http://vimeo.com/31515064
