Pimento cheese, a much–loved staple at Southern picnics, barbecues and potlucks, is as delicious as it is simple. Grated cheddar, jarred pimentos, sweet onions, mayonnaise, and of course hot sauce, all get combined and served, traditionally, with saltines. As if this iconic Southern dish wasn't amazing enough right out of the fridge, try popping it in the oven until hot and bubbling. It's a whole new experience–and one that should definitely be shared with friends.
