  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped sage
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, plus a dash for mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 oz (2 cups) colby cheese, grated
  • 8 oz (2 cups) sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 4-ounce jar chopped pimentos, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • bread, pumpernickel, or bread of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups canola oil


In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sage, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon mustard, cayenne, and Worcestershire sauce with a rubber spatula.

Add the two cheeses and pimientos, blending thoroughly to combine. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Refrigerate until ready to use. Spread between 2 slices of bread.

Homemade Mayonnaise:

In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, a blender, or the jar of mayonnaise maker, combine the yolks, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, vinegar, 1 teaspoon mustard, salt, sugar, and dash cayenne. Pulse several times to blend.

With the processor running at high speed, or while quickly dashing the plunger of a mayonnaise maker, very slowly drizzle in the oil, allowing it to fully integrate as added until all the oil has been incorporated.
