The Food Lab Turbo: These Pimento-Jalapeño Cheeseburgers Will Knock You Out

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

There's something about the way the caviar of the South (as pimento cheese is affectionately known) melts into a rich, oozy coating, its acidity and punch of pimento flavor accenting a thick and juicy grilled burger in a way that regular cheese just can't. Add some pickled jalapeño peppers in there in place of standard pickles and you've got yourself one hell of a fiery backyard treat. More

Richard Blais's Pimento Jack Cheese Sandwiches

Kate Williams 1 comment

The Pimento Jack Cheese Sandwich in Richard Blais's new cookbook, Try This at Home, is nothing like a pimento cheese sandwich you'd see down South. There is pepper jack where there should be sharp cheddar. There are homemade roasted poblanos instead of jarred red pimentos. There is cilantro and lime zest. But I immediately regretted scoffing at the ingredients once taking a bite. More

Richard Blais's Pimento Jack Cheese Sandwiches

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Pimento cheese is one of my favorites from the Southern canon, and I find it is at its best with sandwiched between buttered white bread and grilled until crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside. So when I run into a pimento grilled cheese recipe in a cookbook, it's one of the first things I bookmark. That said, the Pimento Jack Cheese Sandwich in Richard Blais's new cookbook, Try This at Home, is nothing like a pimento cheese sandwich you'd see down south. There is pepper jack where there should be sharp cheddar. There are homemade roast poblanos instead of jarred red pimentos. There is cilantro and lime zest. Surprisingly, these apparent foibles turn out to be assets once the sandwich takes shape, and I immediately regretted scoffing at the ingredients once taking a bite. More

Sandwiched: Grilled Chili-Cheese Spread

Sandwiched María del Mar Sacasa 1 comment

For a twist on the classic pimento cheese sandwich, this recipe adds charred jalapeño and poblano peppers, as well as a warm hint of ground cumin. The soft, spreadable texture remains the same as always, but the flavors are bit more assertive and spicy. More

A Sandwich a Day: Fried Green Tomato BLT at Yardbird in Miami

A Sandwich a Day Jay Friedman 2 comments

Who needs bread when you've got perfectly fried breading, like the type you'll find on the green tomato that forms the base of Yardbird Fried Green Tomato BLT? That tomato is a generous one, sliced thick, but it's not the only tomato that appears on this "sandwich." More

Grilled Pimento Cheese, Ham, and Homemade Pickles Sandwich

Serious Eats María del Mar Sacasa 4 comments

NOTES: I prefer to use piquillo peppers because they are sharper, sweeter, and more flavorful than canned or jarred pimento peppers, but if you prefer pimentos, substitute them here. For best results, use a sturdy loaf of bread, such as... More

Sandwiched: Grilled Pimento Cheese, Ham, and Homemade Pickles

María del Mar Sacasa 12 comments

Everyone acquainted with pimento (properly pronounced "pi-meh-nnah") cheese spread knows that its basic components are orange cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and jarred or canned pimento peppers, but ratios, stir-ins, seasonings, and methods of making are particular to individual households and cooks who jealously guard their recipes. Though commonly served with crackers or celery sticks, my favorite way to eat it is in grilled cheese form. More

A Sandwich A Day: Pimento Cheese from Hominy Grill in Charleston, SC

A Sandwich a Day Sarah Buchanan 4 comments

This combination of sharp cheddar, sliced pimentos, full-fat mayonnaise, and a touch of bourbon is ceamy, fatty, and rich in flavor. With a zesty chile powder kick at the end, this pimento cheese spread feels every bit as decadent as it should. More

It's a creamy, fatty treat that is only slightly blunted by the complimentary side salad. We agreed that this sandwich is best for sharing. More

Hot Dog of the Week: Pimento Cheese Dog from Sandy's Famous in South Carolina

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 3 comments

What absolutely blew my mind was this dog covered with Sandy's own homemade pimento cheese. A line of mustard and a sprinkling of diced onions add a faint zip in the background, but it's all about the juicy dog and super creamy cheese. Fans of cream cheese dogs would be way into this, although Sandy's is a much more delicately built hot dog, some of the best hot dog presentation we saw in the South. More

Pimento Cheese Spread

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 8 comments

This Pimento Cheese Spread from Amanda Hesser's The Essential New York Times Cookbook adds a few extra ingredients to the mix, elevating the classic Southern spread with two types of cheddar and homemade mayonnaise. The recipe calls for the cheeses to be ground in a meat grinder, which I'm sure adds a distinctly coarse texture but the large holes of a box grater or even the grating blade of a food processor work just as well.

Cook the Book: Bacon-Pimento Cheese Bread

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

Pimento cheese is one of my all-time-favorite desert-island foods, so when I came across this recipe for Bacon-Pimento Cheese Bread I was instantly in love. Incorporating all of the ingredients for pimento cheese into a loaf of white bread along with some crisp bacon seemed almost too good to be true. And of course, there was the even more intriguing possibility of spreading the bread with a little more pimento cheese. More

Pimento Cheese Spread

Adam Kuban Post a comment

"At a Texas Super Bowl party, "... You'd show up around noon and stay until the final touchdown. There'd usually be a TV in every room (bathroom included) and some people even hooked up sets outside in the yard. Of course, there were huge amounts of food, and, well, it never really mattered who was in the game, what was really important was just how many good eats you could consume. ..." Good eats in the form of pimento cheese spread. Recipe at Homesick Texan.... More
