Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

These are great to have on hand on game day!  They hold up well, and they’ll tide people over while food is being prepped for the main event.  It doesn’t get more southern than pimento cheese!

1 lb sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 med sweet onion, chopped
1 large clove garlic, quartered
2/3 cup mayo
1 1/2 tsp dijon
1 4-oz jar chopped pimentos, drained
dash of cayenne
s & p to taste
Thinly sliced white bread (such as Pepperidge Farm)

Shred or grate the cheese and place in large bowl.

Put the onion and garlic in food processor and pulse (or chop very finely) then add to cheese.

Stir in mayo, mustard, pimentos and cayenne. Add salt and pepper.

Cover mixture tightly and refridgerate for at least 8 hours for flavors to blend.

Spread over bread and slice into triangles.
