How to make it

  • Two hours ahead, open beer and let it get stale.
  • Two hours ahead, cube the cheese and cover and let set at room temperature.
  • When ready for supper, melt the butter in the top half of a double boiler, over hot water, not boiling.
  • Add cheese and melt very slowly.
  • Mix together dry mustard, Worchestershire sauce, cayenne with a short ounce of stale ale.
  • Stir into melted cheese and mix well.
  • Add remainder of ale very slowly, stirring constantly in one direction only. (Don't ask me why, her directions just said to do it that way!)
  • Stir a small amount of the heated cheese into the beaten egg to temper.
  • Return this to the cheese mixture and stir until thickened.
  • Serve over toast poiints in shallow heat proof dishes.
  • Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Garnish each serving with two strips of bacon.
