Will's Pimento Cheese Spread (S1E5)

(Picture of recipe) Welcome to the Diabetic-Friendly Kitchen! In this episode, we show how to make a quick, tasty treat: pimento cheese spread. It's easy to make, can be adjusted to suit even finicky eaters, and has very litle sugar. It makes an excellent condiment - try it on a burger or deli sandwich - and works just as well as an entree ingredient - try it melted between slices of sourdough for a grilled cheese you'll remember for a long time to come.

That's right - we -can- make more than just desserts!

The Process
