Cheese and Pickle Sandwiches

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

So good with a big mug of steaming hot, sweet tea! I sometimes like to serve these with pickled onions on the side, too. My favorite pickles to use for this are the wonderfully crisp and fresh-tasting bread & butter pickles sold at Trader Joe's.

Delicious! I used to take these with me for lunch when I worked at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Add some grapes and it was a perfect lunch! Thanks! Made for Everyday is a Holiday game.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • mayonnaise, to taste (I just spread thinly on each slice)
  • mustard, to taste (whatever kind you like, I like yellow or spicy stone-ground)
  • 1 -2 slice cheddar cheese (better with a at least a medium-sharp cheddar, if not sharp cheddar)
  • 14 cup bread and butter pickles, drained (or to taste)


  1. Spread mayonnaise and mustard on bread. Trim cheese slices to fit bread and place on one slice. Lay pickles over cheese and top with second slice of bread.
  2. This is a little easier to eat if cut in half, since the pickle slices tend to want to escape.
