An amuse bouche is just the one little bit of goodness to begin a meal. I went with a somewhat Southern touch for this Christmas meal. Let's begin with a little dollop of pimento cheese on toasted bread rounds topped with baby shrimp.
Of course, I made just a very small amount of pimento cheese since it was just the two of us. To make enough for sandwiches or to eat with crackers start with at least 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
I'll just list the ingredients. Mix enough mayo to get a thick dip like consistency.
Sharp Cheddar Cheese
S and P
A dash of cayenne
Lightly toast bread and cut into a bite sized piece. Top with a little pimento cheese. Broil a few baby shrimp and gently place on top of pimento cheese.
