  • 1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated (5 cups)
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup beer
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5 slices white bread
  • 5 slices beefsteak tomato
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  1. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then a wire rack. In a medium bowl, stir together cheese, egg yolks, beer, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Place bread on wire rack, and place under broiler until lightly toasted on one side. Remove from broiler, and invert.

  3. Divide cheese mixture evenly between the bread, pressing gently to adhere. Place tomato slices on the rack next to bread. Drizzle tomatoes with oil, and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Return to broiler, and cook until cheese is bubbling and golden brown, about 2 minutes. Place a slice of tomato on top of each serving; serve immediately.
