Utensils: Cheese shredder or food processor, mixing bowl, measuring cup & spoons, spreading knife, basting brush, baking trays, parchment paper.
  • 1 Loaf Stale Bread, crusts removed, cut in triangles (leave bread over night to dry out *)
  • CHEESE SPREAD MIXTURE (room temperature):
  • 1 lb of finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese ⅓ cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons dry mustard (e.g., Coleman’s) 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • Egg wash
  • 2 eggs beaten
  1. In a food processor or in a mixing bowl by hand, blend all Cheese spread ingredients together until everything is a smooth paste and mostly uniform in color.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  3. Spread the cheese mixture on bread triangles mounding the spread in the middle and tapering the spread on the sides.
  4. Generously brush each prepared triangle with egg wash and then place on parchment paper lined baking trays.
  5. Bake for 15-25 minutes till golden brown or your desired doneness.
*If you do not have time to dry out the bread a day ahead, you can take a fresh loaf, remove the crusts and slice it in triangles and place the slices on a baki ng tray to dry in a 400-degree oven. Turn off the fire once you place the bread in the oven and let the bread dry out for an hour.
