Spicy Pimiento & Cheddar Tea Sandwich
We served this sandwich at our Downton Abbey Christmas Tea and also the Epiphany Tea. Makes a hearty appetizer. We also call it the Spicy Cherry Pepper & Cheese!
  • 2 cups shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup pimientos, drained
  • 2 Tablespoons mayo
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pumpernickel bread

  • In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients except the bread. Cover and chill until ready to use. Add more hot sauce or cayenne pepper for a spicier flavor.
    Evenly spread the cheese mixture on one slice of bread, then top with the second slice or top. Cut off crusts. Serve immediately or chill in a sealed container with slightly damp paper towels covering the sandwiches.
