Ways to use Pimento Cheese!

 

Everybody knows that you can use pimento cheese on burgers, hot dogs, crackers, celery, and to make a great cheese sandwich, but there are so many other things you can do with Prof. Bailey's. Lasagna? Sure. On roasted potatoes? Great idea. Want a few other ways? Check out recipes below. Also use it in place of your normal cheese in some of your favorite recipes....let us know how it goes (we'll even add--and credit you--on this page).

The key to a good grilled cheese has everything to do with the process. Anybody can just toss some American slices onto white bread and get the pan hot enough to melt it. What you've got to do is develop a grilled cheese style, and here's how we do it. 

 

Ingredients:

2 slices, thinly sliced sourdough bread

Butter

Of course, Professor Bailey's Spicy Pimento Cheese.

Butter one side of each slice of bread, put aside.

Heat a skillet over medium and melt a pat of butter, spreading the butter evenly around.

Brown the non-buttered side of each slice in the skillet.

Spread a generous heaping of Professor Bailey's on the toasted side of a slice of bread. Place the other slice on top, making the sandwich complete.

Brown the whole sandwich now, using a spatula to place occasional pressure on the top of each side to melt the cheese evenly.

One tip is to not turn the heat up too high. It's better to grill your sandwich slowly, rather than using high heat, because you might end up browning the outside of your bread and leaving the cheese inside unmelted. That, my friends, would be a crying shame.

Pimento Cheese Grits

1 cup stone ground grits

2 teaspoons salt

one container of Prof. Bailey’s Spicy Pimento Cheese

¼ cup cream

3 tablespoons butter

½ teaspoon black pepper

 

Bring four and a half cups of water to a boil in a heavy pot. Whisk in grits in a slow steady stream. When water returns to boiling, turn eye down to a low simmer. Stir grits regularly until they become a thin mush (7 minutes). Cover pot slightly ajar and keep on a low simmer for about 30-35 minutes. Stir occaisionally. When they are creamy and smooth, stir in salt with a wooden spoon the allow to simmer for about five more minutes. Add cheese, cream, butter, and pepper and stir constantly until cheese and butter are melted and all ingredients fully incorporated.

 

Makes about 8 servings. 

No. 65 Pimento Cheese Souffle

 

Adapted from Kitchen Sense, by Mitchell Davis

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano

1 cup bechamel (extra thick: use 2 tablespoons butter to 3 tablespoons flour for the roux)

1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard

5 ounces Professor Bailey's Spicy Pimento Cheese

4 large eggs separated, at room temperature

 

 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Grease a 7-cup souffle dish.

Put the Parmigiano in the dish and shake around so that it is evenly coated.

Set aside. In a small saucepan, warm the bechamel until it comes to a simmer.

Add the Dijon mustard.

Remove from heat and tir in pimento cheese. When the cheese is melted and fully incorporated, transfer mixture to a medium-sized bowl and let cool slightly.

Stir in egg yolks and set aside.

 

In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer (unless you really want to give your wrist a workout), beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt on medium-low until tehy are frothy white (1-2 minutes). Increase the speed to high and beat until the whites hold stiff peaks.

 

Using a rubber spatula, transfer 1/4 of the egg whites to the cheese mixture and gently stir in to lighten it. Then, empty remaining egg whites into cheese mixture and fold them in to incorporate.

 

Transfer mixture to baking dish and place dish in oven. Set time for 18 minutes. Do not open oven until timer goes off. When the timer goes off, peek into oven to make sure the souffle has risen. Carefully close the door and lower temperature to 375. Bake for about ten more minutes (until souffle has browned and there are no wet, shiny patches on top).

 

After it has browned, remove from oven and serve immediately. A large spoon is the easiest serving implement. Make sure everyone gets some of the browned crust.
