  • Yield 6 servings

Cheddar Rarebit is great served over toasted bread.

1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/2 cup scotch ale


  1. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan over very low heat, add the cheese slowly, stirring in one direction. Add the mustard and the next two ingredients; continue stirring until smooth.
