Buffalo Pimiento Cheese

Buffalo Pimiento Cheese

My husband loves homemade pimiento cheese, but I don’t care for it. Therefore, I have never made it before. But this weekend, we had a little Mills family outing at the lake, and I thought pimento cheese pepper poppers would be a good crowd pleaser. I had an abundance of sweet banana peppers from my pepper plant, so it was a good way to share the goodness. I was very pleased with how they turned out, and I even ate a few myself.

I started out with 16 oz of cheddar cheese. I had a variety of mild, sharp, and extra sharp. I grated the cheese and then ran it through the food processor (I use one similar to this one) to get it into a fine crumble. I added about 2/3 cup mayonnaise to the cheese.

The secret weapon in this recipe is the buffalo sauce. I use Frank’s, but you could use your favorite brand. I used about 2 tablespoons, but you could definitely use a little more if you like it extra flavorful.

I used garlic salt and Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Upnsalt for seasoning. My garlic salt seems to be extra salty, so I only used a little Jane’s. Next time I might use garlic powder and more Jane’s. Or maybe even fresh garlic in the food processor with the cheese. Wouldn’t that be yummy?

Just mix it all together and add a little more mayo if needed to give it the right creaminess.

You can serve Buffalo Pimiento Cheese on crackers or on a sandwich. It would also be terrific as a cheese ball or as a stuffing for celery.

  1. I never thought of making my own pimento cheese! Thanks for sharing!

    BTW I’ve got a recipe linkup going on! (Blog.TheSingingSparrow.com)

  2. Thanks for linking up! This is on my list to make for the football game next week!

  3. When I saw pimento cheese priced from 6.99-12.99 a lb., I thought I could make it homemade for much less. Now, I have added my own variations with Rotel, diced sweet onion, diced roasted red pepper, cream cheese, mayo or Miracle Whip and Worcestershire. We use it to stuff sweet peppers and spread it on top of pickled okra.

    I can’t wait to try yours as my husband loves Buffalo Wings so I am sure he will love your recipe.
