OVEN TOASTED CHEESE (for two)
This is similar to Welsh Rarebit, but with an egg and without the beer, which makes it suitable as a lunch or after school snack for children.
2 slices white bread
1 egg, preferably free range
1-1/4 cups grated Irish Cheddar cheese
½ to 1 teaspoon English mustard
salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 450*.
2. Butter the bread and place buttered side down on a baking sheet.
3. Whisk the egg in a bowl with a fork, add the grated cheese and mustard and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
4. Spread this mixture evenly onto both slices of bread and bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until puffy and golden on the top.
