The 2020 football season calls for new traditions, including hosting watch parties at home with family. Luckily, many tailgate staples will taste as great in your family room as they do in the Grove. This simple pimiento cheese, which uses white cheddar rather than orange, is also a welcome twist on the traditional.

2 (8-ounce) blocks of white cheddar cheese

1 cup mayonnaise

1 clove garlic, minced

2 (4-ounce) jars pimientos, chopped

4-5 green onions, chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

Black pepper, to taste

Grate cheese, and place in a large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Serve as a dip with crackers or as a spread on toasted bread.
