Method

  1. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, garlic and TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce. Fold in sour cream, salt, black pepper, sugar and celery seed and mix well. Refrigerate mixture.
  2. Grate the cheddar cheese using the large grate size of a box grater and place in a mixing bowl. Add the green onions, yellow onions and chipotle peppers. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the cheese mixture and, using a wooden spoon, mix very well. Refrigerate the cheese mixture until needed.
  3. Spread 2 tsp. of butter on one side of each of the 24 slices of bread. On 12 of the unbuttered sides spread 1/2 cup of cheese mixture, and then top with the 12 remaining slices of bread with the butter side out.
  4. In a skillet over medium heat, toast the sandwiches on each side for about 1-1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Slice each sandwich in half and serve while still warm.
