This pimento cheese and pineapple casserole from chef Sarah Simmons's New York City restaurant Birds & Bubbles is a fancier version of her Aunt Edna's famous dish. "It's got all the things you want—a little salt, a little sweet, a little texture, creaminess," Simmons says. "It's fantastic hot, but I actually prefer it at room temperature. Which is great, because then you don't have to fight for oven space."
