Using gouda cheese instead of the traditional cheddar in Gouda Pimento Cheese gives this recipe a delicious twist. Pimento Cheese is a popular Southern spread consisting of cheese, pimento peppers, mayonaise, and seasonings. This cheesy spread can be used in a sandwich, or a grilled sandwich, to top burgers, or as a dip with crackers. It can be eaten hot or cold. And, it's great for picnics and tailgating.
