Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches

Most pimiento cheese sandwiches are just made with pimento, cheese and mayonnaise.  I like this recipe because it adds green peppers and onions.  Add your own favorite ingredients.  This recipe is very forgiving, so don't be afraid to experiment.  I recommending tasting it before adding the salt.  Then just add the amount you think it needs so that you don't over salt the dish.  Add bacon bits to make this a great dip!
Ever thought of making a grilled pimiento cheese sandwich?  YUMMY!  Just use the filling in place of cheese slices.
Place in a bowl
One-half cup of grated cheddar cheese, and then add
One tablespoon of grated onion,
Two tablespoons of finely minced green peppers,
One-half teaspoon of salt, (or desired amount)
One teaspoon of paprika,
One-half teaspoon of mustard,
Six tablespoons of mayonnaise 
Mix thoroughly and refrigerate 2 hours before serving.  Spread on bread, toast, crackers.  Or, use as a dip.

*These little jars are so cute that I can't throw them away.  You can use them to store everything from screws to home-made hand scrubs.  They're also perfect for home-made candles.

HAND SCRUB - Mix 1/4 cup sugar with a tablespoon of olive oil and store in jar.  When ready to use, take a teaspoon out and scrub on your hands.  Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

What an awesome idea for the jars! I'm going to give your scrub a try, as well as your pimento cheese. :)

Great idea with the jars. Like the grilled sandwich idea as well.
