  1. I have family from NC, and have been eating pimento cheese since I was a little girl. Here are my suggestions to make it more like the recipes that I’ve tasted down there:

    Sub Miracle Whip for the mayonnaise, and use 2 cups of the sharp cheddar and leave out the Monterey Jack. I’d also add 1/4 tsp. of Tabasco sauce to accentuate the cheddar flavor. Never heard of adding cream cheese, but I will try it.
