Servings: 8 sandwiches


  • 4 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese; shredded
  • 2 Cup Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese; shredded
  • 16 oz package Cream Cheese - softened
  • 8 Tbsp Pimentos - drained
  • 1 Tsp garlic seasoning
  • 3 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 8 Tbsp Mayonnaise - Duke's or Hellman's


  • Start by hand grating the sharp cheddar & the Extra sharp cheddar cheese. The grating of the cheese is so important for the texture. Use a box grater and grate on the side with the large grooves.
  • In another bowl, mix the room temperature cream cheese, black pepper, mayonnaise & sea salt.
  • Then mix the grated cheese with the other ingredients. Combine, being careful to preserve the grate cheese texture.
  • Once combined  add in the pimentos last. The reason to wait until the last step to add the pimentos is to protect their shape and texture.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerator 12 to 36 hours for flavor development.


  • Preferably served with white or wheat bread.
  • You may buy cheese already grated, but, if you do buy the thick shredded cheese. 
  • Adding a 'lil Tabasco is permitted for those who need a little spice in their lives.
