I asked on Monday for inspiration for a blog post as I had “Bloggers Block”. One of my favourite tweeters said “Cheese and pickle sandwiches. Discuss”.
Oh yes, I thought. I can get my teeth into this one.
So are they the greatest combination for a sandwich? I think they just might be.
The thing is though there have to be some parameters. The bread for instance has to be white sliced. I know. I know. Slap me now. But I don’t like “proper bread” for this, I like plastic bread and if you have a problem with that bit you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Next comes the spready bit. Now you are going to get ranty here. I want Salad Cream. No mayo thanks. Proper Heinz Salad Cream. On both sides of the bread, spread instead of butter.
And then the cheese.
Now for this I want ready grated Cheddar. Yep. Ready grated. In a bag stuff. I used to look at this adn think it was the most middle class and ridiculous invention ever. Until I tried it. And I love it. J would get through a bag of it a day if he was at home, he is such a fan.
It needs to be sprinkled on one piece of the bread until is about half an inch thick.
Next comes the pickle. Now this has to be Branston and their small chunk stuff. I don’t want big cubes of pickle poking through the bread.
Put these two together and then cut the bread into four triangles. Got to be triangles. It tastes so much better than in squares. Don’t ask me why. But if you do research, let me know.
So there you have it. The perfect sandwich.
You can even toast it. It is still perfect in my opinion
