0 Mama's Pimento Cheese

I love pimento cheese sandwiches. . .
so much so that for my birthday this year, my dad, Nate and I stopped at Prasek's on our way to dove hunt and I had a pimento cheese sandwich for my birthday lunch! 
Nate despises pimentos and so, of course, does not share my love of pimento cheese!
When deciding what to make for a family reunion a couple of weeks ago, this recipe caught my eye! 
The sandwiches were delicious and the cheese is a consistency that can be served on a sandwich or as a dip! :-)    
Pimento Cheese
1 large bag sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded/grated (32 oz)
1 (8 oz) block 1/2 less fat cream cheese, softened
8 oz Edam cheese, grated
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 c juice from a jar of green olives
Grate Edam cheese; combine in large bowl with cream cheese, Cheddar, mayonnaise, and olive juice. Mix well; refrigerate until use. This is the basic recipe. You may add garlic, onion powder, black olives, green olives, or pecans - whatever you like to make it your own (I added 1/2 c pecans, 1 tsp onion powder, and 1 tsp garlic powder)
