Fabulous Football Food: Pimento Cheese Toasts

Pimento Cheese Toasts

In its usual form, pimento cheese is a blend of mayonnaise, sharp Cheddar cheese, and pimentos that induces nostalgia. Here, made with roasted peppers and spread on tiny toasts, then broiled to transform it into hot melted heaven, it dresses up for a party with a nod and a wink.

Makes about 36 hors d’oeuvres

Ingredients:

10 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar, coarsely grated (4 cups)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely diced bottled roasted red pepper (rinse and pat dry first)
1 baguette

Preheat broiler.

Stir together all ingredients, except baguette, plus 1/8 teaspoon pepper and salt to taste.

Slice baguette crosswise 1/3 inch thick and spread bread thickly with cheese mixture. Broil 5 to 6 inches from heat until cheese is bubbling and browned, about 2 minutes.
