Cheddar and Hot Mustard Sandwiches

Traditional English pub fare inspired the robust flavor of these simple sandwiches. Serve with ale or Merlot.


4 dozen

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


3 cups (12 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 (4-ounce) jar hot mustard (we tested with Inglehoffer)
1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
12 slices pumpernickel bread, crusts removed (we tested with Pepperidge Farm)
12 slices sourdough bread, crusts removed (we tested with Cobblestone Mill)


Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. Spread about 3 tablespoons cheese mixture onto each pumpernickel bread slice. Top each with a sourdough bread slice. Cut each sandwich into four squares. Arrange sandwiches on a serving platter, some pumpernickel side up and some sourdough side up.

Polka-Dot Sandwiches: To make sandwiches more artistic, cut 4 small circles from each pumpernickel slice and 4 small circles from each sourdough slice using a 3/4" to 1" biscuit cutter. Place the white sourdough circles in holes in pumpernickel. Place the brown pumpernickel circles in the holes n the sourdough slices. Assemble sandwiches as directed.
