Pimento Cheese for The Masters

You can’t watch The Masters without having some Pimento Cheese and Egg Salad. They are staples at Augusta. You can’t go to the tournament without have one of each! We have made versions of both on the blog (see below for links to the recipes).

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 Muffins for 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 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. Perhaps it is because I have an addiction to ooey, gooey, cheesy goodness.

To make the dip, simply combine softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded parmesan, chopped roasted red peppers, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Spread the mixture into a small baking dish and cook until bubbly.

  • 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! 
  • Use Duke’s Mayonnaise for a low-carb dish.
  • Use Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce for a gluten-free dish.
  • I used Frank’s Hot Sauce. 
  • You can make this dip a day or two in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake.
  • This dip is best served warm from the oven. We served this with some Ritz crackers, but you could also use some celery, chips.

  1. I love pimento cheese and I could just dive headfirst into that bowl. I use roasted red peppers in my recipe too…always, always!

  2. Just made this- so good. I used Wickle Hoagie & Sub Relish with the roasted red peppers for a little more zip.

  3. Where are the pimentos listed in the Baked Pimento Cheese Dip recipe? I see roasted red peppers, but no pimentos.
