I have to make some easy food for the kids after school program this week since I am busy cooking for Thanksgiving. I made them a big meat, cheese and fruit platter this morning (forgot to take a pic of it) and I made them some pimento cheese spread. The recipe is below.
I harvested some of my celery yesterday.
And today I am making pots of turkey stock to make turkey gravy. My house smells like Thanksgiving.
I doubled the pimento cheese recipe but I will give you the makings of a single recipe. Combine 1 - 8 oz. bar of cream cheese, 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup of mayo, 1 tsp. of your favorite seasoned salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1 small grated onion, 1 tsp. granulated garlic and 4 tablespoons of diced pimento. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for at least a few hours.
I use the paddle attachment on my mixer to do this.
This is so good spread on crackers and makes a good Thanksgiving appetizer.
