2 oz. Butter.
6 oz. milled or grated Cheese.
3 gills of Milk.
1 dessertspoonful of Flour.
2 slices of hot buttered Toast.
Melt the butter in a stewpan, add the flour and stir for 5 minutes over a slow fire (care must be taken not to burn it); then add the milk and stir until it thickens, add the cheese with a pinch of cayenne, and stir until the whole is of a creamy consistency. Pour this over the buttered toast and sprinkle with a few breadcrumbs and grated cheese; brown under a hot grill or in a very hot oven. Serve at once with dry toast.
