An Unlikely Combination You Have to Taste to Believe
Pineapple and pimento cheese may seem a little out-there, but chef Sarah Simmons, who grew up in North Carolina and now runs the restaurant Birds & Bubbles, in New York City, promises it's fantastic. "It's got a little salt, a little sweet, a little texture and creaminess." You stir together a pimento-cheese mixture with pineapple, spoon it into a baking dish, top it with buttered, toasted cornbread crumbs and bake until it's browned and bubbly. The sweet and savory side is perfect with pork or ham.
