Pimento Cheese Rolls


This is an appetizer recipe that I first shared with my readers on February 6 of this year. I was so brand new to blogging.

Today, I am sharing My Favorite Appetizer recipe over at Kelly’s Korner for her Show Us Your Life series.


From the grilled pimento cheese on challah bread at Henri's Bakery in Atlanta's Buckhead to the savory pimento cheese spread at Zara's Uptown, I am a huge fan of anything made with this Southern comfort food.

     Flipping through the pages of the February 2012 Southern Living magazine, there is a whole section devoted to this savory treat, Pimento Cheese: The Pate' of the South. I salivated at the following mouth-watering recipes--- Smoky Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs, Pimento Cheese Cookies, Hominy Grill's Pimento Cheese, and the one I decided to prepare for a Super Sunday Superbowl Soiree, Pimento Cheese Rolls. These are an easy and great go-to if you LOVE pimento cheese like I do.


Pimento Cheese Rolls

Makes: 1 dozen

     Hand-On time: 15 minutes

     Total time: 1 hr. 15 min.


     1 (25 oz.) package frozen Southern-style biscuits... I used Pillsbury Grands

     All-purpose flour

     2 cups pimento cheese... I used Palmetto Cheese

1. Arrange biscuits, with sides touching, in 3 rows of 4 biscuits on a lightly floured surface. Let stand 30-45 minutes until biscuits are thawed but cool to the touch.


2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle biscuits lightly with flour. Press the edges together, and pat to form a 10 x 12 rectangle of dough. Then, spread dough with pimento cheese.spread pimento cheese

3. Roll up, starting at one end; cut slices into 12(1 inch thick) slices. Place 1 slice into each muffin cup of a lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan.

4. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes; remove from pan, and serve.

    Let me just say that these pimento cheese rolls do not disappoint. They are simply delicious, simply tasty, and simply Southern.

     * Tip: I baked for 25 minutes on top rack of oven. I would probably bake on the lower rack for 20 minutes next time
