Grilling Time (Appetizers) - Pimento Cheese Dip and BACON BURGER SPREAD!

Pin It Now!

I suppose there are worse addictions.

But you had better make a pound of this only when you are planning a party one person or six people, either way this will disappear fast.

I make this with smoked cheese to add even more BBQ flavor when I am planning to use as a Cheese for hamburgers.  This is especially great to use on hamburgers as the mayo in the dip helps the cheese to melt and ooze all over the burger.

The dip worked great as an appetizer the night of this grilling session... Pimiento Cheese Bacon Burgers, Blue Cheese Potato Salad (Tomorrow's Post), a Ramon Noodle Broccoli Slaw (Next Day's post) and served along with those fantastic Grilled Curry Chicken Thighs!

  1. Those burgers look amazing. I have been looking for new recipes for this summer. We just finally got our grills out of storage. We cannot wait till we can actually go out and enjoy eating and grilling outside. Thanks so much for your post.
