Covering the Spread: Pimiento Cheese Dip from Cutty’s in Brookline
Chips and dip are a classic combination that will forever transcend the tedium of food snobbery. When paired with a bag of Layâ€™s, even French onion dip of the Lipton-soup-mix variety can be a thing of beauty, particularly with a beer in hand and the Pats on TV. That said, with minimal effort itâ€™s possible to elevate the snacking experience to a higher echelon. To wit: the pimiento cheese dip from sandwich haven Cuttyâ€™s. A made-from-scratch take on the classic southern variety, this spread combines shredded sharp Cabot cheddar, pimiento peppers, spices, and good old-fashioned Hellmannâ€™s, a recipe owners Charles and Rachel Kelsey cribbed from a Tennessean pal. You can buy it by the 8-ounce container on weekdays, Saturdays, and select Sundaysâ€”just add a bowl of sturdy kettle-style chips or a sleeve of saltines, and itâ€™ll be ready to go before kickoff.
