Pimento-Cheese Butter

This compound butter recipe incorporates the flavors of the Southern staple, pimento cheese, into a make-ahead butter for grilled corn. In the summer, there's nothing like corn on the cob from the grill, slathered with this butter. But don't limit yourself-try this pimento-cheese butter on baked potatoes or roasted vegetables.
