Growing up in the south pimento and cheese was a staple in the fridge , and this Smoked Gouda Pimento Cheese is a must. The cold creamy spread on a piece of soft white bread is pure heaven on a hot humid day.  While there are several acceptable brands to buy at the store, when I was young it was usually homemade. If you have never had this wonderful spread it usually consist of shredded cheddar cheese, mayo, cream cheese and of course diced pimentos.  I got the inspiration for this from Sam’s members mark Smoked Gouda Pimentos  Cheese, after purchasing it I literally ate it straight from the container with a spoon. Like always homemade is usually better, and you want have a large container you are forced to eat alone  😉

I am all about saving time but for this recipe you will have to grate your cheese. For one thing you won’t find the smoked gouda pregrated. Even if it was possible I recommend grating your own. When you buy cheese that is already shredded it has a coating on it to prevent it from clumping up . So doing it freshly is just better for this recipe. I usually use my food processor but a box grater is acceptable also. I still remember watching my mother use her box grater to shred cheese.

Thank you! I was thinking about replacing the Cheddar for more of the Gouda.
