The crumbly cheddar in TV chef Andrew Zimmern’s melted-cheese toasts makes the sauce slightly grainy and gives it nutty, tangy flavor. As an alternative to this single-cheese rendition, he sometimes melts a combination of good cheddar, Cheshire and aged Gouda. Slideshow: More Toast Recipes

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the shallot and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in the flour, dry mustard, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Add the cheese, ale, and Worcestershire sauce, and cook over moderately low heat, whisking, until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Preheat the broiler and position a rack 4 inches from the heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and arrange the toasts on top. Spoon the cheddar mixture over the toasts, and broil until bubbling and browned around the edges, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with chives, and serve.
