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.
