Loaded Pimento Cheese

10 slices bacon

1 pound cheddar cheese (medium or sharp)

1 4-ounce jar pimentos, drained well

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 bunch green onions, diced

Cut bacon into 1/2 inch pieces then cook until crispy. Drain bacon on paper towels. Set aside.

Shred cheese* then add to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add cooked bacon, pimentos, mayonnaise, salt, cayenne pepper and garlic then mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Fold in green onions.

Spread cheese mixture into a serving bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve as a sandwich spread, atop burgers or with crackers, pita wedges, celery sticks or anything else your little heart desires.

*You really, really, really need to shred your own cheese when making Pimento Cheese.
