The Master's Tournament, Waynesboro County Club, and Pimento Cheese

On this Easter weekend, hubby and friends are recreating their own Master's Tournament at the Waynesboro Country Club. 
Each player drew a partner's name from the Master's roster after Round 2 was completed.

I understand that Pimento Cheese is a Master's tradition.  So in honor of the tradition, I've made my pimento cheese spread to entertain my lady friends...
1 8 oz. block* of extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 8 oz block* of sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/3 cups mayonnaise
1 4oz jar diced pimento
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon grated onion
1/8 teaspoon red pepper

* Block cheese is a must.  Preshredded does not work nearly as well!

1.  In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, pimento, Worchestershire sauce, grated onion, and red pepper.
2.  Grate the cheese using two graters-one with a  small shredding side and one with a large shredding side.
For instance, grate the extra sharp cheese using the small size and the sharp cheddar cheese on the large size.
3.  Add the grated cheeses to the mayo mixture.  Stir thoroughly and chill for several hours. (I use a hand mixer or food processor) 
4.  Enjoy!

This will make almost  4cups of pimento spread.. 
Happy Easter from Applejack Lane!

Oh! Pimento cheese is one of my favorite foods. As a matter of fact, we had some today,at our Easter lunch, along with everything else, of course. I agree with you that block cheese is a must. I've never put a bit of onion in mine but I'll bet it really gives it a kick. I'll try it next time. Hope you had a great Easter. I'm visiting from The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sundays.

I've heard great things about pimento cheese, but have never had it.

Wonderful to have you at Seasonal Sundays this Easter.
