Savoury Cheese - Traditional British Sandwich Filler

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by tamed_tigress

This is a gorgeous, mellow sandwich filler I have discovered in Britain and got absolutely hooked on! It's a very savoury and cheesy filling with a lovely melt-in-the-mouth texture which makes it the ultimate comfort food. Attention - some people my find this quite smelly, but it's worth it!

An excellent base for cheese savoury and easy to customise. I like to add some finely chopped red pepper, also a tablespoon of vinegar gives the filling a nice "zing". Although this recipe can be eaten straight away, allowing it to marinate in a jar in the fridge for a few days really improves the flavour. A very popular sandwich filler here in Scotland.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. mix the cheeses in a bowl.
  2. add mayonnaise to desired creamyness (don`t be too skimpy, though!).
  3. Add pepper and salt, finely diced spring onion and finely diced onion in quantities that suit you.
  4. TIPS:
  5. You may omit the Red Leicester and Mozzarella Cheese and use only Cheddar or similarly strong cheese.
  6. This tastes best if made the day before and not served straight from the fridge.
  7. Can be used as filler for sandwiches and baked potato (traditional), but is also gorgeous as a dip for vegetable crudities.
