Cheddar and Brie Pimento Cheese Spread
The quick version of a southern classic gets a creative up-do with the addition of Crème de Brie.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Chill time: several hours
2 (6-oz.) containers Alouette Sharp Cheddar Soft Spreadable Cheese
1 (5-oz.) container Alouette Crème de Brie Original Cheese Spread
2 cups coarsely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 cup coarsely shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 tablespoons finely minced onion
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
2 (4-oz.) jars chopped pimentos, well drained
Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl. Spoon into gift giving-size jars or bowls and store in the refrigerator, covered tightly, until ready to give or serve. This spread is best if chilled overnight to let flavors blend. Serve on soft or toasted French baguette slices, crackers or celery sticks. Makes about 4 cups. Recipe may be doubled.
Note: This delicious spread makes the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich when cooked between buttered slices of bread. Use baguette slices for a great appetizer.
