Pimento Cheese Cornbread

Pimento cheese is a favorite Southern cheese spread and true Southerners can’t get enough of it.  This pimento cheese cornbread is a favorite at my house and it never lasts long when I make it.  We love pimento cheese in and on everything.  My family could eat it at every meal and we love pimento cheese sandwiches for lunch.  This cornbread is light and so good slathered with butter when it is hot right out of the oven.  Serve it with soup or with any meal for a real treat.  This is one of our favorite bread recipes on our site.  You might also like to check out our recipe for pimento cheese biscuits.
