My friend, Mandy, spent part of her childhood living in Great Britain. One of the loves we share is good food. She introduced these to me at one of our Ladies Movie Nights. They were made with rye bread and, even though I don't like caraway seeds, they became an instant favorite! I've tweaked it a bit, and Mandy and I have been discussing other experiments with the basic recipe.

  • 9 slice
    rye or pumpernickel cocktail bread. (2x2x.25")
  • 1/4 c
  • 1-2 tsp
    worchestershire sauce
  • ·
    black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp
    spicy brown mustard, optional

How to Make British Cheese Toast


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On an ungreased baking sheet, lay the bread slices side by side.
  2. in a small mixing bowl, mix mayo, Worchestershire, mustard, and pepper. Add cheese and mix until thoroughly coated.
  3. Place one slice of zucchini on each slice of bread. (I hide a couple shreads of cheese under the squash to help it stick.)
  4. Spread cheese mixture on top, being sure to cover bread all the way to the corners. (The first time I made this, I just put a dollop in the middle. It tasted great, but corners of the bread got really crunchy.)
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve hot or cold.
  6. Other possible add-ins with which to experiment:
    chopped crab meat
    chopped salad shrimp
    chopped green onions
