About Us

Every week on Spilled Milk, writers/comedians Molly Wizenberg and Matthew Amster-Burton start with a food-related topic, from apples to winter squash, and run with it as far as they can go—and, regrettably, sometimes further.

Episode 381: Cheese Toast

How have we missed this!? Today Wilf Chumbly introduces us to the magic that is Cheese Toast. We debate wearing barrister wigs, the merits of LARPing and where the word "rarebit" comes from all while avoiding the dreaded burnt edges. Gooey Cheese Toasts with Mustard and Cayenne - from Tasting Hygge by Leela Cyd 2 large slices of 1-inch thick whole-grain or sourdough bread 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1/2 cup beer (I love Guinness for its maltiness) 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1 teaspoon mustard powder (Colman's is my favorite) 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce Pinch of cayenne pepper Pinch of salt Optional Toppings Fried egg Fresh sage, roughly chopped Pickled onions Mango chutney Grainy mustard Thickly sliced heirloom tomato Seared broccoli Salad of butter lettuce and tangy dressing Toast the bread until dark golden brown and set aside. Melt the butter in a small saucepan on medium heat. Then add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the mixture begins to smell toasty. Add the beer and cook for 1 more minute. Add the cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, and a pinch of salt and cook on medium-high heat for another 4-5 minutes, until bubble and thick. When the cheese sauce is ready, preheat the broiler and place the toasts on a cookie sheet. Generously spoon the cheese sauce all over each piece of toast. It's okay if some spills off. Douse the toasts a second time to make sure they are very saturated with cheese sauce. Depending on how absorbent the bread is, you may have a little cheese sauce left over. Broil for about 5 minutes, until the cheese sauce begins to brown in spots and look golden all over. Serve immediately with assorted toppings.
