Masters Sandwich Recipes: Pimento Cheese, Egg Salad and Other Augusta Favorites

Behold the unsung hero of the Masters: amazing sandwiches that are as cheap and delicious as they come.

There is absolutely no reason why you can’t bring the best of Augusta to your home this week as the 2013 Masters plays out before you on the TV. Sure, the azaleas aren’t as bright and lush, but the food can be just as tasty.

Golf Digest reports the fare at Augusta is extremely affordable as you can see by the prices below.

Well, that does us no good because we are stuck watching live feeds from Amen Corner thousands of miles away. Now is not the time to fret, but rather the moment you get yourself to a store and pick up some of the following necessities.

Note: These recipes are not official Masters concoctions. Also, if you have issues with making a proper turkey and cheese on wheat, go ahead and slap yourself in the face one time for me. Thanks.

Pimento Cheese

I haven’t had the great fortune of eating one of these bad boys, so I will go ahead and believe what a recent fan named Paul Clinton told USA Today. “I’m not a big pimento cheese eater. But last year I had one here, and my mouth was ready for it this year.”

This might not be the exact Masters recipe, but it sounds like the real deal.

Eight sandwiches should get you through day one. I would advise chasing all of them with a refreshing Arnold Palmer for added effect.

Tiny Test Kitchen provides a recipe below, because ain’t nobody got time for videos.

1 cup Swiss cheese, about 5 oz, finely grated
3/4 cup American cheese, 4 oz, finely grated
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 oz pimentos, chopped with juices
4 slices white bread, we used Arnold Brick Oven white bread

1. Combine all ingredients but bread. Stir vigorously for 2-3 minutes. Apply half to one slice of bread, form a sandwich with another slice. Cut through the middle, into two halves. Repeat.

2. It really is as easy as that!
