Calling all buffalo wing and cheese lovers! I’ve got something special for you today that you do not want to miss.

But first, let me ask you a question…

Have you ever eaten HOT pimento cheese? If you haven’t experienced the shear ecstasy of dipping deep into a bowl of steaming liquefied southern cheesy goodness, you have been missing out.

Cold pimento cheese is good, but hot pimento cheese is etherial.

After tasting such a treat, one can only ponder questions like:

“Is it possible to sneak hot pimento cheese into my dinner recipe every night without anyone noticing?”

“I wonder if I could replace all household heated scent diffusors with mini crock pots of pimento cheese?”

“How fast can I list all the foods that are improved by a dollop of hot pimento cheese in alphabetical order?”

And best of all, “What is the best thing to serve with hot oozing pimento cheese?”

Actually the last one is a no-brainer. Bagels.

Bagels are the absolute BEST thing to eat with hot pimento cheese, because you can spread it over the top of each bagel then bake them (or grill them) so the edges of the bagel are toasty and the molten cheese drapes over the  top, softening the inside even more.

It’s like biting into your best childhood memory, while wrapped in a fuzzy pink blanket.

For instance, use up leftover chicken mixed with cayenne pepper sauce for the “buffalo chicken. If you don’t have leftover chicken laying around, buy a couple cooked chicken breasts from the prepared food counter at your grocery store.
