Cheese pimiento is one of my favorite spreads. I love pairing it with pandesal and sliced bread. I had been craving for it the past days so I prepared some the other night. By the way, I learned making this delicious spread from an aunt. When I first tried making it at home, it was a hit with the entire family. This time, the hubby liked it, too.
I’d like to think it’s the Pinoy version I made because it had a hint of sweetness. Haha. There’s no cooking involved here. You just mix everything up and voila, instant yumminess in a spread! (Sorry, I have to use the ‘Cooking with Edel’ title because I’m including this post in that category.)
Anyone can make this spread as it requires just four ingredients:
cheddar cheese (I used Ques-o, 2 small boxes)
pimiento (I used Jolly, small can)
mayonnaise (I used Lady’s Choice, 2 big sachets)
condensed milk (I used Alaska, small can)
1. Grate the cheese.
2. Cut the pimiento finely. Mix with the grated cheese.
3. Add the mayo and mix thoroughly.
4. Pour half of condensed milk into the creamy mixture and mix further until well-incorporated. (Add more milk if you want your spread sweeter!)
5. Spread onto your favorite bread and serve with a smile.
When kept inside the ref, this spread can last up to a week.
Happy eating! 🙂

I will steal your recipe and try my own.It’s been a decade (I guess?!?!) since I had this.
Sure, Gladys. Hope you’ll like it. 🙂
oh, so it’s that easy? thanks for the tip :). i also like it when the sweetness is more pronounced.
Yes, easy peasy. My mom likes it extra sweet also. Haha. 🙂
ang sarap naman nyan lalo na sa pandesal! yum! =)
Yes, Joy, madami-daming pandesal ito! Hehe. 🙂
Oh wow! I didn’t know that whipping up pimiento could be that easy. I’m definitely going to try this.
What’s an alternative to condensed milk if you don’t want your spread to be sweet?
Hi Jill! Yes, easy lang, kayang kaya even if you’re a super busy girl. Heavy cream or fresh milk, maybe? 🙂
