Pimento Cheese On Sun Dried Tomato Bread
The origin of pimento cheese is a mystery, but locating it isn’t hard to do when you’re in the South. It’s a simple, yet sophisticated down-home favorite that’s easily made but not so easily mastered.
Savage’s Bakery & Deli, however, had no problem perfecting the recipe — the trick is going heavy on the mayonnaise, according to Savage’s.
The bakery offers up its delicious homemade pimento cheese spread over freshly baked sun-dried tomato bread. And if you haven’t tried it yet, then you’ve missed out on one of life’s simplest pleasures.
William Savage opened Savage’s Bakery & Deli back in 1939. Van Scott, the current owner, purchased the business in 1978 after William died; he’s been running it ever since. Scott says the pimento cheese sandwich is one of William Savage’s original recipes.
