Pimento Cheese Muffins Recipe for The Masters
These Pimento Cheese Muffins are perfect for The Masters!
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.
What is Pimento Cheese?
One of the traditions of The Masters golf tournament 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 really 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!
What is the best brand of Pimento Cheese?
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)
