Real American Cheese
While everyone in the South knows this stuff at a level of intimacy my family would have reserved for chopped liver, it’s still relatively unheard of up here in the North. Although pimento cheese doesn’t have bacon in it, I’m giving you the recipe because it’s so good with bacon on it—the two pair up nearly perfectly.
On November 25, the New York Times published an article about the quintessential American dish, Macaroni and Cheese. Featured in the article is the Macaroni and Three Peppercorn recipe made by Zingerman’s Roadhouse. Check out the article, then enjoy the recipe included here.
Although I grew up eating stuff that was sold in the supermarket bearing the label “Brick” what we were eating really had nothing other than its name in common with the real thing. What I got was some sort of factory insta-cheese facsimile, shipped from factory to food store within days of making, rubbed with orange food coloring to replicate the traditional washed rind that’s supposed to be on the cheese.
So then, you might wonder, “What is real brick cheese anyway?”
