White Cheddar & Gouda Pimento Cheese

I have been in a love affair with pimento cheese for the past couple of years. I have to admit, growing up I really did not like the stuff. The kind we had as a kid came from the grocery store, it smelled weird and had a strange aftertaste. My new love affair began after a trip to Whole Foods in NC where I happened to find an amazing local brand called My Three Sons. I tried their Spicy White Cheddar and it was absolutely heavenly. I may or may not have eaten the whole container by myself…

I loved this stuff so much that I decided to try to recreate it at home. Gouda is one of my all-time favorite cheeses and makes everything extra delicious, so adding it was a no-brainer. This pimento cheese is creamy and flavorful. It is amazing by itself, with crackers or if you are feeling extra fancy, add it to your BLT sandwich… Mmmmmm!
