Being a mom changed me significantly in so many ways and one of those is how I plan and prep my family’s lunches. See, I prepare 3 lunches and snacks daily for my kids ( elementary and high school) and hubby and it’s not easy. So, I always have some easy-to-make, sanity-saving items parked at the back of the fridge before Sunday ends.

This is one recipe that I try to make once in a while to give me a head start and my son likes it. He loves honey so I used it as a sweetener. This is how we want it…. cheesier, not too sweet and not too runny. But you can definitely adjust it to your liking.

Honey Cheese Pimiento

Cheese Pimiento is a very common and well-liked sandwich spread by both kids and adults. The addition of honey gave it a distinct pleasant taste and a tad healthier too!

  • 1 270g Old Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup bottled sweet red peppers (drained well and finely chopped)
  • 3 Tbsps honey
  • 2 Tbsps softened butter or Becel

Here’s How:

  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well with a spoon until fully combined.
  • Transfer to a lidded food container and refrigerate until needed.
  • Serve with sliced bread, toasted if preferred.


***Add more mayonnaise if you prefer a looser texture. And additional honey, if you want a sweeter spread.
***You can make the peppers from scratch. Just grill one red bell pepper until softened and all sides are charred. Place in a bowl, cover with cling wrap ( to trap the heat and moisture for easier peeling ) until cool, peel off the charred skin, drain with paper towels and chop finely.
