  • 200 g cheddar cheese grated
  • large knob of butter
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp English mustard powder
  • 2 tsp plain flour
  • 4 tbsp beer stout or cider
  • 4 slices of bread


  • Place the cheese, butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, flour and beer into a small saucepan.
  • Heat gently, stirring until the cheese melts and all the ingredients blend together to form a thick paste. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile toast the bread under a grill on one side. Take out of the grill and turn over.
  • Spread the cheese mixture over the bread and return to the grill. Cook until the cheese bubbles and turns golden brown.
