Cheese Sarnie time

Cheese sandwiches.......must always be deployed with either marmite (when mixed with Dairylea) or branston pickle (possibly other chutneys).

Cheese sarnies should never be presented as they are in the box of death issued by the Ration Assasians.

I never believed that Dairylea was cheese. Surely something as chemical-tasting as that can't possibly have been made from the same ingredients as Cheddar, Lancashire, Cheshire, Brie, Gorgonzola and Stilton?

For those of a traditional nature, Asda stock tinned processed cheese in the

'Other Countries' shelves. :eek:
Thought it would be quite nostalgic to try some of this so brought some recently, it was the same as in the compo tins, however it was revolting (as it probably was then), amazing what you will eat when hungry!

Wensleydale makes an exceptional sandwich, and though it pains me to praise something from the wrong side of the hill, Cheshire isn't bad.

Alternatively, a crusty roll with pecorino, sliced beef tomato, salt and plenty of black pepper, drizzled with olive oil is a real treat.

Cheese and Jam sandwiches. Don't knock it until you've tried it, it's yum! :nod:
Double yum, also with a base of peanut butter.

Best cheese sarnie in the world is a hunk of brown bread in one hand a wedge of cheese in the other and take alternate bites.
Pint of ale to wash it down, anything else is elaboration.

Without a doubt... although I'm still working out whether they taste better sitting in the back of a 434 with OMD13 fingerprints on them or not.... :D

I'll go along with that. One of the most appreciated meals of my life consisted of a fresh loaf of crusty bread, a hunk of cheese and a bottle of local wine, eaten on the bank of the Rhine at Bacharach when I was hiking through during a school holiday almost forty years ago. Unbeatable.

Currently swear by:

granary wholemeal/oatmeal bread
+
lashings of garlic and onion dip (used in the lubricative role)
+
extra mature farmhouse cheddar

Generally with a calming pint of IPA to make the nasty day go away

Doesn't that sting? :wink:
As I understand it, Teech's recipe calls for the insertion of a well-lubricated granary roll up the hoop, whilst munching on a lump of old cheese. No wonder he needs a calming pint afterwards. :D

And let's not forget the cheese and onion roll! Fresh crusty roll, grated cheddar, chopped onion. Many a happy half hour was spent in the Sally Bash on Sunday morning reading the papers while eating a couple of cheese and onion rolls.......... :D :D

I like Lancashire cheese as much as the next man, unless of course it is Wensleydale-fancier Wallace. However, how anybody - regardless of origin - can describe Lancashire as more "tasty" (whatever TF that means) than Cheddar...it leaves me speechless.

A cheese sandwich needs a good hard cheese, possibly crumbly, plus some onion or beetroot. One thing it does not deserve or need is tomato...makes it soggy and disguises the cheesiness.

Brie and grapes is not a cheese sandwich under any circumstances. I have spoken.
