Spicy Pimento Bacon Cheese Spread

Spicy Pimento Bacon Cheese Spread

A grilled pimento cheese sandwich on slabs of crusty bread is a staple at the Campbell’s.  We will fold a dollop into an egg omelet, throw a scoop on top of a hamburger or serve as a dip with gourmet crackers. Just make sure the pimento cheese is cold before putting any fire to it, if it gets too hot, you’ll wind up with a mayonnaise mess.


8 oz.  Cheddar Jack cheese, shredded

1/2 cup mayonnaise, you can substitute cream cheese

1 tablespoonful Dijon mustard

1/4 cup candied jalapeños, diced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled

7 oz. jar pimento peppers, drained and chopped 

dash of lemon juice

dash of Worcestershire sauce


Combine the above ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together well. Depending on how you will serve it can be cold or transfer to a microwavable dish and microwave for about 20 seconds or until warm, or put in a baking dish in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes or until heated through.
