Total Time

Soo good, I always got this at school, I will have to thank our chefs for this one. This only tastes good cold, so I wouldn't recommend trying to heat it up

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices bread, white works best or 1 roll, again white works best
  • 1 tablespoon branston pickle
  • 3 slices medium cheddar, thickly cut or 14 cup medium cheddar, grated


  1. Place the cheese on bread or roll.
  2. Spread bread or roll with as much pickle as you desire (has to be Brandeston to get the full effect) the more you add, the better the taste.
  3. Put top piece of bread on.
  4. Cut into a diagonal triangle.
  5. Enjoy.

I'm actually eating one of these as we speak. I'm watching my calorie intake, so I serve mine on reduced calorie multi-grain bread with a slice of extra sharp cheddar and some slices of raw onion. Delish-ous! A bit hard to find in the States, but most of the higher end grocery stores have them in their International Foods section. Smaller chunks are definitely easier to spread.

I finally found Branston Pickle and a Double Cheddar cheese, made this up with a touch of mayo, on sourdough bread. Good . My mother in law is British and when she made a pork snadwich she always used the pickles in the mustard sauce by Heinz or Bicks, she cut up the pickles and cauliflower in smaller pieces, which is a sandwich I love also, both are made by Crosse and Blackwell, ( which both are now in our stores........

I'd never heard of Branston pickle but needed a picnic sandwich for my vegetarian sister. This is really flavorful and we all loved it!! I found Branston pickle at a local British store by looking on the Internet. It's like a vegetable chutney in sauce (think A1 but not exactly). Thanks so much for posting this one!
