How to make it

  • In a saucepan melt the butter over a medium heat & add the flour, cook for 1min stirring constantly,add the eggs & stir for another 30secs.
  • Slowly whisk in the ale but do not let the mixture boil.
  • Add half the stilton & crumbly cheese & stir until creamy, repeat the process until you have used all the cheese.
  • Stir in the worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, paprika, chilli or cayenne pepper, pinch of salt a ground pepper & mix well.
  • Toast the french bread lightly & place on a plate, spoon over the creamy mixture(if you wish you can then place under a hot grill just to crisp the top lightly).
  • place the parsley & tomato ontop & devour.
  • Enjoy with the coldest best real ale or stout you can get you hands on, if all else fails, any alcohol will do the trick, who needs an excuse eh!!

    Right- i did it...finally...
    used guiness and cheddar with blue cheese...
    so it was rather mild...
    next time i think i will make the effort to get the stilton and not just use what's on hand...

    i miss the 'bite'...

    but this was absolutely delish!
    def 100 times better than anything i have had in a restaurant on this side of the pond...

    thank you so much sir bonzai!..
    i will def add this to the list of regulars!!!

    This sounds wonderful. Would a Harp work for ale? Or an India Pale Ale? I really want to try this. Thanks again.

    ahhh...heaven on toast!!...

    it doesn't even seem difficult...
    just a matter of getting the ingredients---

    i'm only one person!

    does the cheese mixture reheat well, do you think, if i wanted to have it again the next day?...and the next...and the next..........
