Belgian Welsh

Whaa? Cheddar and Beer? Omg YES!!
This is a typical Northern France-Southern Belgium dish I recently discovered and immediately fell in love with.
Serves 2-3
enough dry bread slices to fit the bottom of your oven dish
2-3 large slices of ham (enough to cover the bread)
1 lb cheddar
1 beer (I used a belgian blond beer)
1 tsp mustard
some fresh ground pepper

1. If your bread is fresh, toast it. I used whole wheat hallygrain. Place at the bottom of your oven dish.
2. Cover the bread with ham.
3. Cut your block of cheddar into cubes and melt it gently in a sauce pan. It shouldn't be stringy but creamy.
4. Stir in the mustard, pepper, and beer and whisk until even.
5. Pour over bread and ham. It should cover all of it.
6. Put into oven at 400°F for 10 minutes.
Serve with a salad.... and beer of course. It is actually served with fries too, but that's just too much for us.. well, me anyway.

This is total bar food.. We love it!
