Pimento Cheese Dip is a great combination of the simple pimento cheese sandwich in dip form. A southern twist on the Jarlsberg Dip from Kroger’s.I have a problem, I love cheese! I mean I really love all types of cheese and especially a good cheese dip or spread. Unfortunately, this is not good for my health or my waistline. I am getting to the age when I really need to worry about this type of stuff. I am not a big sweet’s person, so cheese and crackers or something sweet and salty is what I like to have for a snack.Since this week is The Masters which is probably my favorite golf tournament. I decided to make a twist on the traditional Southern pimento cheese sandwich. Okay, so you are wondering what in the heck does a pimento cheese sandwich have to do with The Masters.
Well, if you are not a golf fan or have not been lucky enough to make the pilgrimage to Augusta National to watch The Masters, you might not understand.
In 2013 I was lucky enough to spend two days enjoying The Masters and Augusta National. It is truly a moving experience if you are a golfer. The coverage on tv is beautiful but it does not do justice to how incredible the place is. A few years back I wrote a post about my experience and the food served on the grounds of Augusta National.
I recreated the simple Pimento Cheese Sandwich on white bread that costs like $1.50. Amazing, I mean look at those prices above!! Just think what a beer and a hot dog costs at an NFL game. My Pimento Cheese Dip is a twist on this recipe but is better for snacking while watching The Masters all weekend.

- 6 ounces Pepper Jack grated
