Pimiento Cheese

After making several well-recommended recipes that were suitable but not awesome, I tweaked one of them in a couple of ways, and this one just hit the spot for us.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise (Hellmann's)

2 Tablespoons Kraft Miracle Whip

4 ounces diced pimiento (Dromedary), drained well

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins)

1/2 teaspoon finely grated onion (with the juice)

1/16 teaspoon ground red pepper

3/4 teaspoon sugar

4 ounces extra-sharp cheddar (Cabot brand), grated finely

4 ounces medium cheddar (Cabot brand), grated on larger holes of grater

Instructions:
Mix mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, pimiento, Worcestershire sauce, grated onion, ground red pepper and sugar together.

Mix grated cheeses together and add mayo mixture, mixing well.

Cover and refrigerate.

Makes about 2 cups


Brands do make quite a difference in some recipes, in my opinion, so I included the brands I used.

Based on a recipe for Basic Pimiento Cheese, although I like more pimiento, and the addition of a little Miracle Whip gives it more zip.
