Pimiento Cheese

I love making this as a spread.  However, I know it's more traditional in the South to make it for sandwiches. Usually, it is easier for me to make in a double batch.

2 Tbsp block cream cheese (¼  block)
¼ cup mayo
1 tsp finely grated onion (including juice)
dash Worcestershire sauce
dash salt
dash ground red pepper (or black)
4 oz. (½  cup) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 oz. jar pimiento
dash smoked paprika, optional

Mix all ingredients together.  Allow to chill for several hours.  Eat on crackers or as a sandwich.
