Pimento cheese is a regional dish native to the Southern United States that is a mixture of cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, pimentos and seasoning. The combination of cheese and mayonnaise makes the dish particularly caloric.
A 1-ounce serving of commercially made pasteurized pimento cheese contains 106 calories, 8.85 grams of fat, 6.27 grams of protein, 5.57 grams of saturated fat, 0.49 grams of carbohydrate, 405 milligrams of sodium and 27 milligrams of cholesterol. Fat accounts for approximately 75 percent of the calories, protein for 24 percent and carbohydrate for 1 percent.
