There is only one word for these pimento cheese grits.....DIVINE!


Palmetto Pimento Cheese is just the ultimate store-bought brand ever! I initially discovered this is Atlanta when visiting the Divine Miss M! At the time, Little Luke did not really care for pimento cheese...until......I offered to serve him a "grilled pimento cheese sandwich" for lunch one day! All it took, was one bite and he then declared himself a real fan of Maine Grandma's pimento cheese sandwich!

I was so distressed that our Costco did not carry this brand and continued to scour the Metroplex for this yummy concoction! Lo and behold, I discovered it at Wal-Mart! I was in heaven. It was time to marry two of our favorite foods together.....Grits and Pimento Cheese.....Heaven.....I am in Heaven!

  1. These look delicious! I'm going to have to look up what 'grits' are as I haven't heard of that expression over in the UK :-)
