If you enjoy pimento cheese and you think you've had the best, we invite you to try our version of pimento cheese...we call it Palmetto Cheese™. Born in the low country of South Carolina, this pimento cheese has the perfect dipping texture, a smooth taste, and is pleasing to the palate long after the last dip. The word is can now buy authentic, homemade pimento cheese at your local grocery store. Palmetto Cheese™ has real sharp cheddar cheese, it is real southern, and it is really good. Pick up a tub and you will see why this pimento cheese is the best on the market today.


  1. ON a broiler pan of course with Palmetto Bacon cheese on Bunny White bread. Just ten minutes on each side at 400 degrees. Melt in your mouth YUMMY!

  2. My fav grilled cheese is Palmetto Cheese (original of course) tween 2 slices of sourdough, outside slathered with buttah, put in a cast iron frying pan. Grill until golden brown on both sides. Eat while hot!! 😀

  3. Get in bed with a tub of pc and some crackers the best nighttime snack or fix a hamburger take two pieces of rye bread and pc and grill both sides of the bread with the hamburger in the middle with pc on top the best sandwich in the world

  4. Just plain white bread (any kind will do), add Palmetto Cheese with Jalapenos, butter the outside of the bread, and grill!!! Then serve with BBQ potato chips! The perfect lunch!!!!!!

  5. I like my grilled cheese on sour dough bread with Palmetto Bacon PC and thinly sliced tomato and grilled on my panini press! Yummmm!

  6. Jalapeño PC on a 1/2 lb burger on grilled sourdough bread with fresh sliced tomato and crispy lettuce! Rather have that than a NY strip steak! Add a couple slices of crispy thick sliced bacon …………! It’s the PC that makes it gourmet!

  7. This PCGC only works in summer when the tomatoes are uberfabulous and right out of the ground:
    thick slices of country white or sourdough
    jalapeno PC, crispy bacon strips
    cover both outsides of bread with olive oil butter from Land O’ Lakes
    spread layer of PC, add bacon and grill in cast iron pan with bacon press on top, both sides, then pull out the sandwich and add slices of garden tomatoes, sprinkled in seasalt and pepper (the cool of the tomatoes provides a little heat relief, and serve with plain potato chips and a little home brewed ice tea with a big slice of lemon.

  8. I love to use slices of french bread with Palmetto Cheese with bacon and sliced tomatoes. Butter the bread good before you put it in the pan. Spray the pan before putting in the butter so it doesn’t burn quickly. Don’t cook at too high of heat, and it will be perfect. Just add a dill pickle on the side.

  9. I like it simple. Original palmetto cheese on buttered bread. I prepare mine on my George Foreman grill. Yum Yum.

  10. Rye bread with horseradish mustard and cheese. This was my husband’s creation so when he is deployed I often eat it and think of him 🙂

  11. Sourdough sliced thick, Palmetto cheese with bacon, sliced pineapple. melt butter on griddle place sandwich on and brown both sides. Serve with tomato soup in cooler weather. Warm weather chips and a gingerale!

  12. Two pieces of fresh white bread, Palmetto Cheese w/ jalapeno and two slices of fresh – peeled tomato. Spray Pam Olive Oil into pan and grill until the bread is crispy! Oh my, gotta go home and cook one now!

  13. Of course our daughter loves to help make grilled cheese on my homemade spelt bread. We love the bacon PC with lots of butter lathered on the outside…real butter from Happy Cow Creamery, that is! 🙂 Full fat!

  14. Love the Jalapeno PC with bacon and tomato on rye bread/grilled to a nice golden brown with the cheese oozing out from under the bread…

  15. I love mine grilled on any kind of bread buttered and filled with original Palmetto Cheese! Serve with potato chips and coca-cola on crushed ice for the perfect lunch!

  16. Butter the outsides of the bread extremely generously. Fill with Palmetto Cheese JALAPENO style! Put even more butter in a cast iron skillet and heat the butter til it’s bubblin’. Fry the sandwich until it’s very well done – nearly blackened. Best. Sandwich. Ever.

  17. Take a homemade piece of sourdough bread lay on the PC Jalapeno, put another slice of the same bread on top, toast and eat.

  18. We use whole wheat bread, a little dab of mayo, a slice or two of onion, Palmetto Cheese pimento cheese, spread it evenly, and toast in the panini press…. delicious!!!

  19. I like my grilled cheese with Palmetto pimento cheese,juicy sliced tomatoe, and bacon! My most favorite pimento cheese in the whole world :):):) Oh yeah……must be on sour dough and grilled with REAL butter 🙂

  20. Palmetto and tomato on sourdough grilled until lightly brown with a bowl of tomato soup and a big glass of cold milk….in a Turvis tumbler….if I had one lol…dunk the sandwich in the soup and enjoy!

  21. traditional Palmetto & bacon on pumpernickel – my favie!!! If home grown summer tomatoes are also available – even better! mmmmm….

  22. So far I can’t find the Bacon Spread…so we make our grilled cheese out of the Jalapeno….straight from the tub..melted goodness….with chips…or tomato soup…YUMMOooooooo !
