Recipe from the Blue Moon Inn which closed in the 1960's. It says that it was often served at wedding receptions held there at the Inn.
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 1⁄3 cup chili sauce
- 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 cup pimento stuffed olive, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- Mix all ingredients and chill. Trim crusts from white or whole wheat bread and spread with mixture. Cut into three strips for sandwiches. Can also be molded and served with crackers or melba toast rounds.
This sure beats my Mom's pimento cheese! Such heat and flavor! I loved it. My chili sauce was on the hotter side, and it really made this dance. Thanks for sharing!
I really enjoyed this tasty sandwich Nancy. It was sharp, tangy and robust, a beautiful blending of flavors and textures. You could taste all the individual ingredients, nothing was overpowering. Truly a taste experience. Thank you for sharing.
Perfect for a 50s-60s vintage party as an appetizer, when pimiento-stuffed olives and special cookie-cutter shapes were considered gourmet. The olives overwhelmed me, so I think these should be served as appetizers, only, too piquant for regular lunch-time sandwiches. These are mis-categorized as sandwiches, as the ingredients do not list any bread, whatsoever; this recipe is really just a spread. I would have used a star cookie cutter if I had found it. I served on Pepperidge Farm Very Thin White Bread, which would have been considered gourmet at that time. Use this spread for a retro-party, and serve some good martinis on the side. To complete the mood, play Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or Perry Como. Made for 1-2-3 Hits tag game.
