Servings 1


  • 1 cup of Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 8 large olives no pimentos, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 pinch of cracked black pepper
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter


  • To make the cheese, add everything to a mixing bowl, and do just that, mix it very well. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • When you are ready to make the grilled cheese, spread the half of the butter onto one slice of bread. Spread a generous amount of the pimento-style cheese onto the other slice of bread.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-low heat. Add the buttered slice of bread to the skillet, butter side down, then top with the cheese slice down. Spread with the remaining butter, and cook for a few minutes, gently lifting and looking for a golden brown. Once golden brown, flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
  • Place onto your serving plate, and slice in half, or not, that’s up to you.
  • The end result is one of the best grilled cheeses I’ve had in a long time. It was nice and cheesey, but had this awesome kick from the garlic and olives. I was kind of giggling when eating it because it was just that awesome. So if you haven’t made pimento cheese, give it a shot, and let me know what you think.
