The Masters Pimento Cheese


It's Masters Week!  The Masters golf tournament is a big event at our house.  Chicken Legs clears his schedule and watches the entire tournament.  This year they are even televising the putting green and driving range.  Masters overload!

A few years ago we were lucky enough to get tickets for two days of the practice rounds.  It was so much fun.  The course is incredibly beautiful.  One of the most unique aspects of The Masters is that the food and beverages are super cheap.  Four of us ate lunch for only $20.  That is unheard of at a sporting event.



The standard food at The Masters is egg salad sandwiches and pimento cheese sandwiches.  I have shared my kicked-up version of The Masters egg salad, so I decided I needed to give the pimento cheese a whirl.  It turned out great and is super easy to make.  The pimento cheese is great on a sandwich (a la Augusta) or on crackers.



The Masters Pimento Cheese
(Printable Recipe)


1/4 cup cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp garlic salt
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup diced pimentos

Whip cream cheese until smooth.  Add in mayonnaise, sour cream, and garlic salt.  Whip until smooth.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes, or until ready to serve.

  3. You should try a pimento & bacon grilled cheese sandwich. It's next-level awesome.

  6. I've only seen pimentos in a jar. Do they come fresh ?
    If they do,what do they look like ? Are they with the Mexican peppers etc?
    do you have to do anything to them before using them- like blanching, seeding or ????
    Or do you just use a small jar for this ?? I'd like to try this I think !!

  11. Hubster is watching it, I would suspect he faked illness to stay home and watch, but the Dr's confirmation he has a virus proved me wrong. LOL.

  12. Great sounding sandwich Steph. I'd like to just ride around the course the day before golfing begins. The Masters - it's about golf not hosing the spectators to make money that none of the members or club needs - I like it.

  13. Greetings from Augusta! While I'm not a fan of pimento cheese or the Masters (or the traffic - ugh) I did find your site through Pinterest and can't wait to check it out!

  14. I am another Augusta who does not care for either Masters or pimiento sandwich. I think the reason food is so cheap at this event because it is crappy fast food.
    But I love your cats! Have 3 myself.:)

  15. My pimento cheese recipe is a simple, southern one passed down. Cheddar cheeses, pimentos, and mayo...that's it. Let the flavors meld together. There's no need for additional salt or parmesan cheese with it's salt or cream cheese to make it creamy.

  16. You can't beat homemade pimento cheese.

    I've been meaning to tell you for a week that I tried your Fiesta Chicken Casserole last week and it was fantastic, a hit with the family.

  20. How long can you keep this in the refrigerator?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Elizabeth - I would say this would last at least a week in the fridge. Enjoy!

  22. Wow, best pimento cheese ever! I used to use Paula Deen's recipe (I think?) but had a bit too much garlic and onion. I was hesitant about the parmesan since I've never seen it in a pimento cheese recipe before...but it was fabulous! Thanks!

  23. Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it for my little girl's first birthday and it was a hit!
    Thank you!
