From the Test Kitchen

Pimento cheese is a classic Southern condiment made from a simple trio of shredded cheddar, mayonnaise, and peppers, often given an extra boost of flavor from spices. We’re seasoning ours with ground yellow mustard, garlic powder, and a touch of sugar, then using the delicious spread to top simply seasoned burgers. A side of roasted sweet potato wedges rounds out the dish.
