Serving Suggestions
Sure, you can eat our cheese on crackers and chips, but we want you to take your experience farther. Cooking with any of our four pimento cheeses is the real deal. Below are a few suggestions from our family and other Red Clay Gourmet fans for you to try. We will add to these often, and if you have more ideas please feel free to email them to us. Feel Good Food should be shared and enjoyed!

Red Clay Gourmet

Southern High Rise or Stacker –
Fresh sliced tomato, crispy bacon and Hickory Smoked pimento Cheese stacked club-style on toasted sourdough or wheat bread.

Fried Green Tomato BLT –
Lightly-breaded, pan-fried green tomatoes with our Hickory Smoked pimento Cheese on toasted sourdough bread with crispy bacon, lettuce and tomato.

Smokey Jalapeño Poppers –
Take fresh jalapeño peppers, cut the stem off, and remove the seed core. Stuff the jalapeños with either Hickory Smoked or Jalapeño pimento Cheese. Place the stuffed jalapeños in the freezer for about 1 hour. Dip the stuffed jalapeños into a wet batter of your choice and then fry them to a golden brown.

Stuffed Mushroom Caps –
Remove the stem from your favorite mushrooms. Gently stuff the caps with any of our pimento cheese flavors. You can serve them cold or place them under the broiler in your oven until the cheese is starting to melt, pull them out and enjoy.

Red Clay Gourmet

Southern Bruschetta –
Cut a fresh baguette into ½-inch slices, brush with olive oil, and toast lightly. Let the slices cool, and then add a layer of your favorite pimento cheese. Top with freshly diced tomatoes and crispy bacon bits – the perfect appetizer for any gathering!

Burgers, Chicken, Dogs and Sausages –
Feel free to add any of our cheeses to your grilling agenda and take advantage of the flavor that will enhance your favorite grilled meats.

Pimiento Queso –
Heat your favorite pimento cheese in a bakeware-style dish in the microwave until it is melted thoroughly. Enjoy with tortilla chips, flatbreads, pita, or anything else that can support a dip of this stature.

Pimiento Cheese Scramble –
Just before your scrambled eggs are done, add a generous portion of your favorite pimento cheese. Finish cooking and enjoy.
