Hearty Cheese ‘n’ Toast

I added caraway to my father's recipe to give this old-fashioned dish a robust taste. Whether served with just the sauce of with meat, this makes a filling meal.

  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat. Stir in flour to form a smooth paste. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir until the mixture is smooth and thickened. Add the Worcestershire sauce, mustard, caraway and pepper. Stir until well blended. Add the cheese; cook and stir over low heat until melted.
