Pimento Cheese Dogs
These hot dogs put a little south in your mouth! Pimento cheese is one of my favorite party snacks but, in this case, a great condiment.
¾ cup mayonnaise
½ jar of pimento peppers, chopped
4 pickled jalapeno slices, chopped
1 teaspoon white wine or white balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup mild yellow cheddar, grated
1 cup sharp white cheddar, grated
A handful of chives, finely chopped
6 hot dogs, grilled
6 hot dog buns
Butter lettuce, for serving
Fried Onions, for topping
Place the mayo, pimento peppers, jalapeno peppers, vinegar, mustard, paprika, salt and cayenne into the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Turn the mixer on to a low sped and mix until just combined. With the mixer running, add in the cheese and chives. Once combined, turn off the mixer and remove the pimento cheese to a bowl.
To build a dog, Place a leaf of lettuce down into the hot dog bun and top it with a dog. Top the dog with a few spoonful’s of pimento cheese and garnish with some crunchy fried onions.
