Bacon Up Pimento Cheese Spread
cream cheese (bring to room temperature first, if using a block)
Bacon Up® bacon grease
Worcestershire sauce (or Tabasco if you prefer more heat)
pimentos or roasted red peppers (if using the latter, you’ll need to cut them into smaller pieces before adding)
shredded cheddar cheese
(Note that many people prefer shredding their own cheese, since packaged shredded cheese includes a non-stick coating)
Mix together garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Stir in Worcestershire or Tabasco sauce.
Add cream cheese and Bacon Up bacon grease to seasoning mixture and blend until smooth.
Fold in pimentos and cheese until well blended.
Cover and chill for an hour or more to allow the flavors to develop.
