With the news of the Black Friday Brawls at WalMart, it looks like the holidays are well and truly upon us.  And we all know what that means – lots of family and friends getting together … and lots and lots of leftovers.

Let’s be honest, while the meal, itself, is good – it’s the sandwiches that you have in the days following that are truly outstanding.  As for me, my favorite thing is toasted (blank) and cheese sandwiches.  Whether it’s turkey, ham or roast beef, add a little sharp cheese and toast it with some soup on the side and you have a feast fit for a king!

Pop this in a plastic container and it’ll keep in the fridge for three weeks or so.

Fancy-Pants Cheese Spread

  • 9 oz sharp cheese, grated (I like a good cheddar, but Gruyere would also be yummy)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp English mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • dash or two of Tobasco (or your favorite hot sauce)
  • milk or cream, if necessary

Pop the lot into a food processor and blend until smooth.  If it forms a ball, dribble in some milk or cream until it smooths out.
