Pimento Cheese Spread

On a magazine cover at work I saw a great picture of some homemade pimento cheese spread made into a grilled cheese and it looked so good I had to try it out for myself. I found the recipe online which was a little different from classic pimento cheese because it had horseradish in it. The recipe is pretty simple and I was able to whip it up pretty easily and we made the grilled pimento cheese sandwiches for dinner!

Pimento Grilled CheeseIt was extremely rich!! It was hard to get through the whole sandwich and then afterwards we were both kind of put off from eating any more. It was good though!

Here it is not in grilled form

Pimento CheeseCheese + Mayo… how could I have NOT thought it would be super rich!!
