    For something different like a game tailgating add some horseradish to the recipe then buy some pork rinds heat in oven for a few minutes then sprinkle a dry rub over them. Enjoy!

    I have learned to love pimento cheese since moving to Memphis ten years ago. I have even developed my own recipe, which is similar. No mustard, celery, or the spices you have, but I do add Black & Red (black and red pepper blend) from Penzy’s. Give it a bit of a kick. I think your additions may add some depth, so I’m gonna give it a try — but keep my Black & Red.

    And truth be told, Dukes is the only way to go!

    Well you finally got me – had to post: All of these suggestion are wonderful. I think the key is the cream cheese for smoothness. Instead of onions, maybe a little green onion and finely minced jalapeños? Cheese choices can be just about anything as long as they are layered (or not) flavors. A little Pecorino, possibly some Fontina and a dash of Parmesan with the sharp cheddar. Bacon could overpower so if you need that then do as the previous poster suggested, eat bacon with this dish. My personal thought is that with the herbs or other additions you must be careful not to obliterate the cheese(s) flavors so go slow on amounts with the add-ons if you head that direction – again, all are wonderful ideas and now i plan to put on several pounds to test them all

    Sounds great. A pimiento cheese sandwich, like most things in life, is better with a couple of strips of bacon.
