Delicious! The fresh onion taste is really nice with the white Cheddar (I used Cabot Cheddar).

I made this exactly by the recipe except I left out the red onion because of other reviewers' comments. There was still entirely too much onion flavor. It really overpowered the cheese taste.

Not normally a pimento cheese fan, but this was excellent.

I was looking for a recipe that would be close to the one I get at the Tuesday farmer's market here in Houston. I was AMAZED at this recipe's flavor. It tasted exactly like the one from the market, only better! I was very pleased with this recipe and will continue to use it as often as I can.

This is such a great recipe. I have always really liked the concept of pimento cheese, but usually find the execution to be mediocre. This version is not overly sweet and doesn't overdose on mayo. The onions add a great kick. Give it a shot!

I love this as a base, but I used 3 T. light mayo and only 1 T of worcestershire sauce. I am not a huge pimento fan, so I used roasted red peppers to sub. I also added a little yellow mustard and a few drops of hot sauce. Love it!( Okay, I changed it a tad.. :) )

Very yummy and I loved the texture and consistency. Definitely held up well and got better by the hour!

I was very pleased with this recipe! I am a pimento cheese fan, only homemade, no store bought. I was a tiny bit nervous about the white cheddar, but I absolutely loved it! The onions give it a great splash of taste. Cannot wait to eat it for lunch today!
