Question How can I make a good cheese and onion sandwich.

Hi! Been really craving a cheese and onion sandwich recently. Nothing fancy, what you'd get in a Tesco or wherever. I've tried a few times using various online recipes and they usually end up tasting of salad cream and onion. They're alright, but never really have the right taste or texture.
Any reccos?

Try grating Dubliner Irish cheddar (Costco or Sam's club) and use whole foods 365 mayo.

The Tesco version has some cream cheese in it...perhaps lessen the Mayo content and add some of this. It seems getting strong cheddar would be key to offsetting the Mayo. I’ve settled for Old Croc as a decent enough cheddar. Trader Joe’s might carry Red Leicester which is also in the Tesco version.

Ocado helpfully lists proportions of each ingredient in the M&S cheese and onion filler which might help... https://www.ocado.com/products/m-s-c...ller-506104011

Have you seen this site? BRITS IN LA : DIY SUPERMARKET SANDWICH - CHEESE & ONION!

Now you’ve got me wondering how to make an authentic M&S ham, cheese and pickle...

Yes, I have nothing to add but put cheese between bread, but I was drawn to the post.

I don't think you are asking quite the right question. It should be "How can I make a good ploughman's lunch with ale?"

Well seeing as it is in the US forums is anyone going to suggest using cheese from a spray can?

They don't put that in the sandwich though, they just squirt it directly into their mouths.

Also, nobody has pointed out the lack of Branston pickle.

I was thinking that maybe you could stick some funyuns in there

One of hubby’s favorite sandwiches…cheese and Branston. Fortunately I can get it here in Toronto.

In Chicago, perhaps. Here in the Trumpy hinterland, they actually inject it.

This stuff looks promising! Thank you, I'm getting started soon!

As for the Ploughman's I fortunately have access to the real deal Branston-wise!
