  • 1 pound Cheddar, grated
  • 4 to 8 pieces lightly toasted bread

  2. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and very fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in cayenne, then whisk in beer and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. When mixture is uniform, turn heat to low and stir in cheese, again stirring until smooth.
  5. Remove from heat and pour into a broad container to set
