Pimento Cheese Appetizer + Recipe

You absolutely, positively should be making Pimento Cheese.

Pimento Cheese on Toasted Bread SquaresI swear I was Southern in a past life. I say y’all all the time, butter may be my greatest love, and I’m obsessed – OBSESSED – with Pimento Cheese. When the folks at Schar asked me to try out their new Gluten-Free Artisan Bread and to come up with a fun recipe or two, I jumped in with both pimento-loving feet. I just knew that fluffy, delicious, bread would be the perfect base for a Pimento Cheese Appetizer. There’s just one catch – you’ll probably want to make it when there are other people around. I don’t know about you, but I’ll eat it all by myself if given the opportunity!

Enjoy this creamy spread with your favorite gluten free crackers, or spread it on top of toasted gluten free bread and top with additional pimentos and chives. Either way, you’re going to want to try this simple Pimento Cheese Appetizer for your next party – made with my favorite Pimento Cheese recipe!

Once you’ve tried this amazing appetizer, you’re going to want to find all sorts of new ways to enjoy it. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

I like to toast the bread and cut it into quarters before topping it with the cheese. Enjoy!
