Kick the snow off your boots before you come in on the back porch and leave your boots on the rug by the door. Here, let me take your coat. I just made a fresh pot of coffee, chicory of course and a pitcher of sweet tea,. What can I get you? We're having Sarah's Pimento Cheese Spread on Whole Wheat Beer Bread and Vegetable Beef Soup for lunch.
Sara's Pimento Cheese Spread
3 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature
8-ounces grated sharp cheddar (grate your own)
1 pound of Velveeta cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Hellman's mayonnaise (or good quality)
1/2 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
1/2 teaspoon each or salt and pepper
1 - 4 ounce jar of chopped or diced pimentos
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon pickle relish juice
Using an electric mixer beat cream cheese until fluffy and smooth. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blended, but not smooth. Use as a dip for veggies or a sandwich spread.
COOK'S NOTE: Don't dump all the mayonnaise and salad dressing in a one time, add about 2/3's and check for spreading consistence. You want a nice easy spreading consistence not real stiff. Add more until you're happy.
