One of my ex-sons-in-law gave me this book, which had been used in a school in England. I don't know if it had been discarded or if some Artful Dodger lifted it, but it made its way to me, and I am utterly delighted with it. It says things like, "Put a kettle on to boil," and, "Use a section of kitchen roll to spread the fat." It has instructions on how to cover a pudding for steaming and how to grill tomatoes. It's lovely!
Okay, so here's their recipe:
SAVOURY CHEESE TOAST
- 200 g Cheddar, Lancashire, or Cheshire cheese
- 4 thick slices of bread
- 1/2 level tsp. dry mustard or a few drops of Worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper
- A little milk to mix
- Grate cheese on to plate, using large holes of grater.
- Toast the bread, butter it and keep warm on a large serving plate under the grill, turning this very low.
- Put the cheese in a basin, add seasonings and stir in enough milk to make a spreadable mixture. Turn up grill
- Pile on toast, taking it right to the edges.
- Put the toast back under a hot grill and cook for a few minutes, until golden and bubbly.
There are only two of us, so I used two pieces of bread. I probably used about two cups of cheese, using a mixture of sharp cheddar, mozzarella, Parmesan, asiago, and Romano. I used a li'l squirt of yellow American mustard, and I used water instead of milk to moisten it.
It was so good!
