Pimento Cheese Recipe

Homemade Pimento Cheese is southern comfort food!

This is the BEST homemade pimento cheese recipe that you will EVER eat.  It was passed to me by my former co-worker Barbara Hacker.  When she shared this recipe with me, her “secret” ingredient became a game changer for me.

This was the single most requested recipe that she prepared for school luncheons, and I treasure her recipe.  Barbara was a true gift, and I treasured her friendship.

It is hard to find Blue Boxes of Kraft American Cheese anymore, but you can substitute with other brands, and it is still great.  The secret ingredient is the crushed pineapple. You can also use it in this yummy Pimento Cheeseburger recipe.

Be sure to give this homemade pimento cheese recipe a try. It is perfect in the summer or served as a sandwich with a bowl of chili. It is our go-to recipe year round.
