Of course in our opinion, the best treats are made with Cabot cheese. Pimento cheese is one of our special favorites. So why not indulge in one of these decadent pimento cheese recipes tonight? You know you deserve it!

Start with our base recipe:

The Best Pimento Cheese — this special blend of three Cabot cheddars plus our Lowfat Plain Greek Yogurt is utterly flavorful (and a lighter choice than a traditional mix because we swapped mayo for yogurt!)


Then choose how you want to treat yourself:

Serve these Baked Pimento Cheese Cups to yourself poolside or to your guests on the side of dinner.

What’s better than Mac-and-Cheese…with pimento cheese? (We can’t think of anything…)
