Cheese and Branston Pickle Sandwich

Select a good quality mature Cheddar cheese with a spread of small chunk Branston pickle and a little mayonnaise, and you’ll have yourself a tangy cheese and pickle delight.

If you like, this recipe is a reduced version of a Ploughman’s sandwich, but without the salad. If there is any Branston pickle sandwich you have to make, try this simple but very tasty combination, thanks to sweetness of the Cheddar and the tangy pickles of the Branston.
