Infinitely Poppable Pimiento Cheese Wontons

It’s patio time, it’s porch time, it’s picnic time—aka, it’s the perfect time for pimiento cheese. Although we love it slathered on a sandwich or atop a juicy burger, we recently saw an ingenious twist on the Southern treat in Atlanta. Sweet Auburn BBQ, inside the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, is a spot where barbecue and its traditional side dishes collide with global influences (Jamaican Jerk Collard Greens anyone?). It’s here that they take their creamy-with-a-sriracha-kick housemade pimiento cheese, wrap it in a wonton and serve it alongside bacon marmalade. Genius. A poppable pimiento cheese.
