Helpful hints

  • For additional protein, add 1 scoop of whey protein powder when blending ingredients together.
  • The cream cheese is easier to work with when softened, making it easier to spread on the bread.
  • If you are making only one sandwich, store remaining pimento cream cheese in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • For more variety try different types of bread such as sourdough, rye or whole wheat.

Pimento Cream Cheese Sandwiches
Theresa64 says:

This sounds really good. I also think it is high in sodium so I did a little research and found: Pimientos can add a sweet pepper flavor to your dishes quite similar to roasted red bell peppers. Using roasted red peppers may lower the sodium content, pimientos are ground into the common spice paprika. Replacing the pimentos with paprika will also lower sodium content, and there are different flavors of paprika.
