'Tis the season for sandwiches. Everyone looks forward to the end of the school year; warm weather and lazy days. With those lazy days come lazy lunches and dinners. Who wants to go inside and cook a large dinner when you would rather be outside playing? For the food allergy families out there it is easier said than done. The food allergy families try to set aside a day or two to prepare as much as they can so that they may also be able to enjoy those lazy days. My family loves sandwiches on a hot summery day. We have an outdoor kitchen and we use it often; stocking it with sandwiches, chips, and drinks. With that thought in mind, I decided to include my recipe for pimiento cheese; tastes great on sandwiches or on celery. In the picture below we enjoyed grilled pimiento cheese and sausage sandwiches recently on a Sunday afternoon after church.
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup mayo
1 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tbs pimientos
3 tbs chopped roasted red peppers
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp ground mustard
1 chopped green onion (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Combine all ingredients into large bowl. Set into refrigerator for at least an hour, will taste even better when left overnight.
