Pimento Cheese at The Masters
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.
What is Pimento Cheese?
Pimento Cheese is very popular in the South. It is, in the simplest terms, cheese, mayonnaise and pimentos. It is served on bread, crackers, vegetables, or in sandwiches. I’ve even seen burgers topped with Pimento Cheese!
The standard food at The Masters golf tournament 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.
How to Make Pimento Cheese?
My version of The Masters Pimento Cheese turned out great!!! I used three types of cheeses in my pimento cheese – cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese. It gives the pimento cheese SO much flavor. Feel free to swap the cheeses for your favorites. Pepper Jack or Gouda would be delicious too!!
Pimento cheese is great for parties and tailgating. You can make it a day or two in advance and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
