Farmer’s Wife Pimento Cheese Spread

Drew and I recently visited the new Farmer’s Wife location in Millbrook (located where the old Mabbettsville Market used to be).  Be sure to read our “review” of the new Farmer’s Wife in Millbrook.  I LOVE what owners Job Yacubian & Emilie Sommerhoff have done with this space.  And of course, the food was stellar.

We asked Job to share one of his favorite new recipes with us. Trust me…pimento cheese spread may sound old-school but I call it “delicious vintage.”


great as a dip

or as a spread in a sandwich….YUM!!



  • 6 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 12 oz chopped roasted red pepper
  • pinch cayenne
  • Frank’s Hot Sauce…. to taste


Combine all ingredients in the Cuisinart (or any food processor) and puree it up until you get the texture YOU like!

At the Farmer’s Wife, we like to puree it really, really smooth (A rubber spatula helps to do this. Use to  periodically keep scraping down the sides of the food processor bowl) That being said there is no wrong texture! Certain places in the South demand it be really, really chunky.

It’s great with your favorite cracker for cocktails or use it as a spread on a sandwich like the photo above.  I’ve also made a quick “mac n’ cheese” by tossing a tablespoon or two with some hot cooked macaroni.

The possibilities are as endless as your imagination.
