Pimento Recipe request

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Three 4 oz jars of diced pimentos have been evicted from my pantry. I don't even remember why I bought them.

Any suggestions on what to do with these things? I haven't a clue.

Oops! It's spelled, pimientos. Maybe that's why I couldn't find any recipes on a web search.:blush:

Off the top of my head, you might strain them and mix them with 4-5 beaten eggs, salt and pepper. Pour into a generously-oiled hot pan, then cook over medium heat, shaking often, until brown on the bottom and still rather wet on top. Drop a plate on top, flip the pan (over the sink), and return to the hot pan. Cook a few more minutes until done through. Cut in wedges and serve hot or room temperature. Accompany with olives; a couple of tomatoes cut in slices and garnished with balsamic, fleur de sel, and good olive oil; and a good dry sherry, cold.

How about that Southern classic, pimiento cheese spread?

I like KYheirloomer's idea! A grilled pimiento and cheese sandwich would be pure heaven right now. Too bad, I don't have enough cheese here to make it.

Sharp Cheddar, mayo, Worchester sauce, pimientos, maybe some diced Ortega chilis, a "touch" of your favorite hot sauce, stir together, pack in a container, and refrigerate for a couple of days for flavors to "meld". Yeah RIGHT! I never get past an hour or so!

Roast some basic veg - carrots, parsnip, potatoes, butternut pumpkin, red onions, with olive oil, S&P, thyme & rosemary if you like 'em, plus some slices of garlic. Put the pimientos in for the last 10 minutes of roasting, toss them all around. Delish! Serve as a stand alone dish, add some fetta cheese for a vegetarian complete dish, maybe even some kalamata olives, or add as a base for some roasted lamb, beef or fried fish even.


Or sautee some onions/eschallots, then add pimientos, heat thru, add some dried ground oregano or whatever suits your fancy, puree and sieve to make a sauce.

Wish I had your problem :)
