Ingredients

  • 2 cups finely grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Ground red pepper or hot sauce to taste
  • 1 (16-oz.) package firm white sandwich bread slices

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Beat cheese and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Beat in cream and next 5 ingredients.
  2. 2. Cut crusts from bread slices; cut each bread slice into 4 squares. Spread cheese mixture on half of bread squares (about 1 tsp. per square); top each with 1 remaining square. Spread remaining cheese mixture over top and sides of sandwiches. Place sandwiches, 1 inch apart, on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  3. 3. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
