According to Mike Walker at Golf.com, “what gets the most raves from golf fans attending the Masters for the first time isn’t the lush fairways, or the sparkling white-sand bunkers, or even the azaleas that are in full bloom, but it is the Masters concession prices that really blow first-timers away: they’re the best bargain in sports.”
Ham and cheese on rye? $2.50. Coca-Cola? $1.50. Domestic Beer? $3. But the most traditional Augusta menu offering is the pimento cheese sandwich, which costs only $1.50.
If you can’t make it behind the gates of Augusta National this spring, here’s how to make the pimento cheese sandwich at home.
Masters-Style Pimento Cheese Sandwich
Combine the ingredients: cheeses, pimentos, mayonnaise and mustard in a food processor and process until its smooth. Cover and chill in the refrigerator. Spread on slices of white bread.
3 cups of shredded white cheddar cheese
2 cups of shredded yellow sharp cheddar cheese
4 oz of crumbled blue cheese
1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (4-oz) jar sliced pimentos, drained
1 cup light mayonnaise
2 tbs Dijon mustard
1 loaf of white bread
(Makes four sandwiches)
