READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by Perfect Pixie

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

I learned of cheese and pickle sandwiches whilst watching an episode of Doc Martin. It's an interesting sandwich, but not a great one, as most Brit food is. I ordered Branston Pickle and Collier's Powerful Welsh Cheddar online and have eaten a few cold sandwiches as prescribed on various sites. Today, I made a panino with Country White bread and the other requisite ingredients, grilled on my little George Forman appliance, having coated both top and bottom with olive oil (the bread browns more quickly this way). I was much more pleased with this sandwich heated, and I highly recommend it in this manner! By the by, I think Dubliner White Cheddar is very similar to Collier's Powerful Welsh, and it's readily available at Costco.

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.
