Easy Baked Pimento Cheese Dip for The Masters

What is Pimento Cheese?
Pimento Cheese is a Southern staple. It is basically a combination of cheese, pimentos and mayonnaise. It can be used as a dip, spread, in sandwiches or on top of burgers. Last year I made some yummy Pimento Cheese Muffinsfor Masters week. They were incredibly delicious. This year I decided to turn our Masters Pimento Cheese recipe into a baked dip.
How to Make Pimento Cheese Dip
This Baked Pimento Cheese Dip is super easy to make and it tastes GREAT! OMG! SO good. I really, really, really liked it. I actually liked it better hot than on a sandwich, but that is just me. I have an addiction to ooey, gooey, cheesy goodness. I used a jar of roasted red peppers in this Pimento Cheese Dip. The roasted red peppers are very similar to diced pimentos. They have a similar flavor. I just wanted the more robust flavor of the roasted red peppers for this dip.
Feel free to mix up the cheeses in this recipe. I think Pepper Jack or Gouda would be nice. You can also add bacon and jalapeños!
You can make this dip a day or two in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake. This Baked Pimento Cheese Dip is best served warm from the oven. We served this with some Ritz crackers, but you could also use some celery, chips.
