I love homemade pimento cheese. My friend Patti created these adorable Pimento Cheese Presents Finger Sandwiches and I thought they were so cute for the holidays. Just by adding a stem of green onion and tying it off in a knot she was able to create an adorable and edible “present”.
These Pimento Cheese Presents finger sandwiches can be made on any bread of choice and are the perfect addition to a Christmas Tea or Brunch. I hope you love this recipe as much as we did at our Holiday Tea. Thanks Patti for sharing this recipe with us.
Best of all you can use homemade or store bought pimento cheese for these. You could even substitute ham, chicken or tuna salad if you aren’t a fan of Pimento Cheese (but if you don’t like it we can’t be friends 🙂
To make your pimento cheese simple mix the cheeses together. I prefer mixing by hand. Then stir in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate. Allow your pimento cheese to meld together and then make your sandwiches and “tie” your present with a green onion stem and you are ready for the most festive tea or party food during the holidays.
I hope you enjoy these Homemade Pimento Cheese Sandwiches as much we did! They are so much fun to enjoy at a Holiday Tea.

This mixture works well served with crackers (use less Miracle Whip) or on sandwiches.
