1/4 cup English beer or ale
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound English Farmhouse Cheddar, finely diced (about 2 cups)
6 slices white bread, such as Pullman or sandwich loaf, crusts removed, cut in half on the diagonal and toasted

In a double boiler, mix beer, mustard, cayenne, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook over simmering water and add cheese by the handfuls, stirring constantly to make a smooth sauce.

In a 9-inch pie plate, layer toast triangles. Pour sauce over bread and broil until cheese is bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes. - serves 4 - Adapted from Endangered Recipes by Lari Robling
