Pimento Cheese Spiced Up!
I love pimento cheese! One of the great joys of moving back to Nashville was its presence on every lunch menu!
Unlike chicken salad, the recipe for which is subject to wild and unfortunate interpretations, pimento cheese is reliably consistent, and I say this with affection, even a bit bland.
So I was intrigued when my friend Tom Bailey launched Professor Bailey’s Spicy Pimento Cheese which heats up the traditional recipe with the inclusion of fresh jalapenos, roasted red peppers, and a blend of spices. Wow! As Tom says, “less mayo and more kick!” Bland be banished!
Now as yummy as the spread is (and be sure to check out the recipes on the website), my favorite product is the tiny pimento cheese biscuits, which served warm make irresistible hors d’oeuvres.
You can find Professor Bailey’s Spicy Pimento Cheese products on-line, at the Nashville Farmers Market, The Produce Place, Boone & Sons, and Lazzaroli Pasta Shop and Italian Market in Germantown.
