I got my food processor out to make the EF pimento cheese and for the life of me can't find the recipe. I don't know if I misplaced a magazine or not. I've tried searching on the EF website without luck. I'm hoping someone out there has it at hand.

TIA

Maybe because you're spelling pimiento wrong? I entered it that way, but got so many recipes I didn't want to cull through them all. Try it that way and see if you have any luck.

Do you happen to know the issue, I have most, or was it posted here?

Is this it?

3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 ounces. cream cheese
2 tablespoons chopped roasted red peppers
1 cup grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to taste
salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor, pulse together mayonnaise, cream cheese and red peppers until combined.

Add cheddar cheese, cayenne, salt and pepper. Pulse until spreadable and slightly chunky.

How can they call it Pimiento Cheese if they use "chopped roasted red peppers?" They're close, but they ain't the same thing.

To a Southerner, that recipe has 4 too many ingredients anyway. The pimiento cheese of my childhood is:

1 jar pimientos, drained
grated cheddar cheese (to the proportion of cheese-to-pimiento you want)
dab mayonnaise

Mix. The End.

Thanks everyone. Good to get the proper spelling Bob.

HealthyinMN....that is the recipe...only instead of roasted red peppers, the recipe uses pimientos.

Thanks! I KNEW you guys would come through.

Gratefully yours...

you'd hate mine then-- i do frank stitt's, which also has sugar and some hot sauce in it, but i add a Big tbsp full of dijon.
and i found that i disliked the texture from the FP, it's much better tasting when it's not so overly creamy. fine hand grated cheese works the best, to me. pimiento cheese on a crisp saltine, heavenly.
