I cannot believe I have never made pimento cheese for the blog. My mom loves pimentos so she suggested I create a pimento cheese dip for #BrunchWeek. Of course, I had an amazing selection of cheeses to choose from, since Cabot is one of our sponsors that have donated some great prizes for the #BrunchWeek giveaway.

Vermont Sharp Cheddar and Legacy Collection Alpine Cheddar were the two cheeses that I used in this recipe. You can easily use any of the Cabot cheeses - they are all delicious.
