Healthier Pimento Cheese Bites

Looking for a fun & pretty holiday appetizer?  Try my Healthier Pimento Cheese Bites!

Hi guys,

First off I want to wish a happy 6th anniversary to the Hubs!

Back in September I went to High Tea at the Biltmore with my friend Marilyn for our birthdays.  The first course is always a plate of savory sandwiches and bites.  They always have the most interested foods.  This time we got these cute and super tasty pimento cheese bites.  They were kind of like individual cheese balls perfect for a small taste.

Both of us loved them and thought it would be a really fun recipe for the blog so I decided to recreate them… in my own healthy way of course!  Luckily they turned out great and my Healthier Pimento Cheese Bites are a winner.

They bites are made out of a less creamy version of my Lightened Up Southern Pimento Cheese… which uses greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.

To make these festive for the holidays I added a green pistachio on top!  They give the bite just the crunch they need and perfectly compliment the red pimentos.

These are a little messy to make because you have to hand roll them but the presentation for a party could not be easier.  If they need to firm up more pop them in the freezer or fridge for a few minutes.

Serve them as shown or with a festive toothpick.

These would be great to take to a potluck or have in the fridge when friends stop by during the holiday season.  They look pretty and taste great… plus who doesn’t love some good ole’ pimento cheese.

    Something that sounds so decadent is actually not too bad for you. That means you can have a few more right? 🙂
