Michael Weldon


4 – 6 people


Prep Time 10-15
Cook Time 15-20


  • 1 Coles Sourdough Loaf, cut into thick slices
  • 1tbs butter
  • 1tbs Coles Plain Flour
  • ¼ cup of Coles Full Cream Milk
  • 1tbs KEEN’s Mustard Powder
  • ½ cup stout or dark beer
  • 1tsp Worcestershire sauce, plus extra for garnish
  • 100g Coles Vintage Cheddar, grated


  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter and add flour – combine and then add KEEN’s Mustard Powder. Gradually add milk, stirring in between, and then do the same with the beer. Combine grated cheese and stir until cheese has melted completely and the texture is smooth.
  • On a flat oven tray lined with baking paper, pour mixture and spread evenly – allow this to cool down in the fridge. Once mixture has set, place in a bowl, ready to spread over toast.
  • Meanwhile, line another tray with sliced bread and toast in the oven for 2 minutes on each side. Once toasted, spread cheese mixture onto each slice.  Place back into the oven for 3-4 minutes, grill on.
  • Remove from oven and cut a few slashes into the cheese, then pour some drops of Worcestershire sauce to soak into these.
  • Enjoy!
