Pimiento Cheese - Tavern Crock of Cheese

 Adapted from the Colonial Williamsburg Chowning Tavern recipe to feed less than a tavern full of people 

mix together well:

1 quart mayo

8 oz cream cheese, softened 

1 T salt

1 T black pepper

1 tsp cayenne pepper

2 oz horseradish

1 oz Worcestershire sauce

1 T hot sauce (like Texas Pete)

1 lemon, zested and juiced  

couple tablespoons chopped shallots or finely chopped sweet onion

~ 1/2 jar of roasted red peppers, drained and chopped

stir in:

1.5 pounds shredded cheddar cheese - I prefer a mix of yellow and white extra sharp cheddar, maybe with a bit of smoked cheddar or dubliner as well


Serve with crackers and/or veggie slices.   Could easily be converted into a cheeseball.
