  • 1.5 lb sharp orange cheddar coarsely grated
  • 0.5 lb Vermont white sharp cheddar coarsely grated
  • ½ jar roasted red peppers drained and chopped
  • 2 green onions finely chopped (use both the green and the white parts)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 dash Tabasco optional
  • Duke‘s Mayonnaise to moisten & hold it together


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl with a rubber spatula. (Do not combine all in a food processor!)
  • Cover & chill to let flavors blend.


Do not use pre-grated cheeses.
May change cheese proportions as desired & still be “authentic.”
