'Most Valuable Pimento' cheese recipe: Pitmaster Rodney Scott’s Super Bowl staple
Super Bowl Sunday calls for plenty of delicious snacks. Football fans and food lovers-alike annually look forward to a spread of chips, guac, salsa, wings, mac and cheese — the list goes on.
But James Beard award-winning pitmaster Rodney Scott's game-day MVP is a pimento cheese — and the recipe for the dish is aptly dubbed "Most Valuable Pimento."
"Pimento cheese is a staple in the South," the founder and pitmaster of Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ tells USA TODAY in an emailed statement.
And it's a great option for hosting because it can be prepared a few days in advance, Scott explains. "All you need to do is remove it from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior (to serving)."
