Ham and Cheddar Tea Sandwiches

Ham and Cheddar Tea Sandwiches are always a delightful and simple savory to serve for afternoon tea. 

Ham and Cheddar Tea Sandwiches
Serves: 12
  • ⅓ pound English Cheddar cheese*
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons prepared English mustard*
  • 8 slices firm honey wheat bread
  • 8 large slices deli-style ham
  1. Using a cheese slicer, cut very thin slices of cheese horizontally from cheese block.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and mustard until combined.
  3. Spread a layer of mayonnaise mixture onto 8 bread slices. Arrange 2 ham slices each on 4 bread slices. Place cheese slices over ham. Top with remaining bread slices, spread side down, to make 4 whole sandwiches.
  4. Using a serrated bread knife in a gentle sawing motion, trim and discard crusts from each sandwich to create a 4½×2½-inch rectangle. Cut each sandwich into 3 (2½×1½-inch) rectangles. Serve immediately, or cover with damp paper towels, place in a covered container, and refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving.
