Honey Cheese Pimiento

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.

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!
