Pimento Cheese Muffins {The Masters}

Pimento Cheese Muffins {The Masters} - pimento cheese baked into yummy muffins. Great as a snack, breakfast for with dinner.

The Masters golf tournament starts this week. This is a big deal in our house. Chicken Legs is a huge golf fan. We've been lucky enough to go to The Masters a few times for the practice rounds. It is an amazing experience. The course is one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world.

One of the traditions of The Masters is the food. They are famous for their pimento cheese and egg salad sandwiches. I've made my own versions on the blog. Both are great. This year I decided make some pimento cheese muffins. I modified one of my favorite cheesy muffin recipes by adding pimento cheese to them. They were great! We don't even like pimento cheese and we loved these cheesy muffins. They are perfect for snacking during the tournament, breakfast, lunch, dinner or even tailgating this fall!

One note on the pimento cheese in this recipe. I made these with a couple of different brands of prepared pimento cheese. I highly recommend using Palmetto brand pimento cheese. I found it in the refrigerated section of the grocery store - near the shredded cheese or cream cheese. It is packed full of cheese and wasn't an orange goopy mess. Palmetto has several varieties - plain, jalapeño and bacon. I used the bacon in this batch, but I plan on making a batch with the jalapeño pimento cheese soon! (Palmetto doesn't know me, I just think it is the best for this recipe)

  2. I have a question. Do you think you could use homemade pimento cheese? I ask because I am really not a big fan of store bought pimento cheese as I feel like there is a bad ratio of cheese to mayo. ha. Love your recipes! Been following your blog for about 2 years!

    1. You can use homemade. The Palmetto is FULL of cheese - I was really impressed with it.

  5. Palmetto Cheese is very good. I prefer the plain; bacon didn't do much for me. I have tried other brands from the grocery store, and this is the best by far.

  6. We don't even have pimento cheese in our area!! (I had to google it to see what the heck it was! And no grocery store carries it). Can I use a "cheese spread" instead?

    1. Cheese spread won't be the same. You can make homemade pimento cheese or use a cup of cheese and add a couple of tablespoons of pimentos.

  10. How do you store these? At room temperature or do they need to be refrigerated?

  11. All I can say is, "WOW" - these muffins are absolutely FANTASTIC! I made them today (so easy to make, by the way) and we had them with tonight with dinner. I thought my husband was going to eat the whole batch, lol. He is a bread person but I am not; however, I was right there with him in how good these are! I had never heard of Palmetto pimento cheese but looked it up and found it was sold at 2 nearby grocery stores - so stopped and bought a container. All I can say about it is.....I will NEVER eat the orange goopy stuff again! I am now a fan - it is SO darn good! It is a little pricier but I am willing to pay that for the increase in good taste! Thanks so much for your blog - I have found so many recipes that I have printed and have - and will - try! I like the Bubble Up casseroles, too! Yum Yum!
