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.
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

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.
