Pate´ of the South....

While in the Carolinas last week, A friend made "Pate´ of the South", a recipe she found in an old southern cookbook.  It was so good, that I came home and made a batch!

It is perfect on Triscuits and a bit addicting!

Pate´of the South
1 1/2 lbs grated sharp Cheddar cheese
4 oz cream cheese
3/4 c mayonnaise
1 T grated onion
1 t cayenne pepper
7 oz pimentos, chopped

Place cheeses, mayo, onion and cayenne pepper in a bowl and with electric mixer, blend until mixed.  Add pimentos and blend - don't over mix!
Store in fridge - take out 1/2 before serving to soften
(serves 12-16 people)
