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.

With only seven ingredients, and seven minutes in the oven this is a recipe you’ll make all season. Plus, baking Buffalo Chicken Pimento Cheese Pizza Bagels is a great way to make use of leftovers or store-bought item favorites.

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.

You can also use fresh homemade pimento cheese, or buy your favorite brand of pimento cheese at the store.

Slather soft fragrant Thomas’ Plain Bagels with the pimento cheese. Then top each bagel with shredded pepper jack and buffalo chicken.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  4. Remove from the oven and sprinkle each half with crumbled blue cheese and chopped green onions. Serve warm!
