1. Start with a can of Beer
2. Resist the urge to drink it!
3. Pour it into a frying pan and proceed.

A Wholesome -- Taste Bursting Delight. This is quite similar to Welsh Rarebit, and is also great ladled over toasted bread points or maybe Salmon Patties. It should have a thick gravy consistency.

Ingredients

1 can(s)
beer (i used coor's light)
2 to 4 oz
sharp cheddar cheese cubed
2 to 4 oz
colby cheese cubed
2 tsp
corn starch heaping in 1/3 cup cold beer
1/3 to1/2 c
green olives sliced
3 to 4 slice
crisp cooked bacon crumbled
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp
tabasco sauce (optional)
dash(es)
salt if desired taste first
crutons if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour 2/3 can of Beer in fry pan. I use fry pan for greater heat area distribution. Low simmer for a few minutes. Mix 2 heaping tablespoons of Corn Starch to a slurry in the reserved 1/3 can of cold beer.
2
With Beer warming to a slow simmer stir in the Slurry and stir well. Increase heat while stirring. Note: Cornstarch has to come to a high simmer to thicken. It might not look too tempting at this point, but trust me. Do not allow to boil or it will curdle and separate.
3
When thickened reduce heat to low to very low. Add the 2 to 4 oz. each of the cubed Cheddar and Colby Cheeses, and stir to melt cheeses.
4
Add the sliced Green Olives and the crumbled Bacon, continue to stir. Simmer on very low for 15 minutes, stir occasionally.
5
Add 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce and 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce (Optional), stir. Taste, add dash of salt if desired. If it appears too thick add a little water or a bit more beer or milk. to thin.
6
Bowl it up and add a few Croutons if you wish. Cheers! Err... Enjoy.
7
Caution: Do Not Microwave to re-heat, I repeat do Not Microwave to re-heat. It will curdle and cheese will become solid and stick to spoon. Instead warm slowly in sauce pan or fry pan. Add a little water or milk to attain desired consistency to it.

P.S. In putting a recipe through these rigors, you find these things out. Re-Heat in Sauce Pan.
