Pimento Cheese Recipe

After having had a wonderful appetizer at Magnolia Restaurant in Charleston, Jeff tried his hand at making pimento cheese at home. It was a huge success! If you'd like to try his recipe for Pimento Cheese, here it is:

Pimento Cheese

1 garlic clove
1/2 cup pimentos finely diced
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 cup mayo (can add up to 1/4 cup more to taste/consistency)
6 oz. sharp white cheddar cubed
6 oz. mild orange cheddar (or colby) cubed
salt and black pepper to taste

In food processor, chop garlic, cheese cubes. Add mayo and spices. Combine. Add pimentos at last instant and only slightly pulse to combine but keep pimentos somewhat intact. Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow flavors to combine. Set out about 15 minutes before serving.
