Total time: 18 minutes | Serves 2
- 8 ounces good-quality cheddar cheese, chopped
- 1 (10 3/4 -ounce) can condensed tomato soup
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons minced onion
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 4 thick slices whole-grain bread
- 1 tablespoon snipped chives
Step 1Put the cheese, tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce, onion and pepper in a skillet. Stir over medium heat until the cheese is thoroughly melted.
Step 2Remove the skillet from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes for the cheese mixture to firm up slightly. Ladle the mixture onto the slices of toast and broil until the tops start to bubble -- but don't let them brown. Garnish with the chives. Serve hot.
Note: "Blushing bunny" -- and even more, the alternate names "rinktum ditty" and "rumtum tiddy" -- reflect the long popularity of this dish in the nursery. Chives, minced onion and a decided dose of Worcestershire give it a more grown-up effect, though this will always be comfort food.
