#TLPTailgate Recipe of the Week: Pimento Cheese

#TLPTailgate Recipe of the Week: Pimento Cheese
Put a new twist on this tailgating staple during football season, and share your plate with us on social media using #TLPTailgate.

Pimento cheese may be a Northern invention, but leave it to Southerners to find a way to reinvent the spread one thousand times over. Take a trip below the Mason-Dixon line and you’ll find it slathered between fried green tomatoes and bacon on a BLT, mixed with diced jalapeño, and baked in mac and cheese. It’s no wonder this cheesy goodness has been dubbed the “caviar of the South.”
