Here’s the Dirt…Mimi’s Baked Pimiento Cheese

This is my Great Aunt Emily “Mimi” Harris’s recipe. Mimi is 91 years old and is still living in Winterville, Georgia. I remember as a child her serving this dish whenever we visited. To this day, whenever I fix this side dish, it receives raves. Even the ones who don’t care for pimiento love this dish.

1 cup milk
1 cup water
3 eggs
1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese. grated
