"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

1/2 lb. sharp or extra sharp Cheddar cheese (I would use Cracker Barrel)
1 egg
2 T. butter
2 T. flour
2 c. milk, scalded
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard

Melt the cheese with the butter in a double boiler.

In a bowl beat the egg, flour, salt and dry mustard.

Pour 2 c. scalded milk into the above, then pour melted cheese into the rest.

Return all to the double boiler and stir until thickened.
Beat with egg beater if it curdles.
Serve on crackers or toast points.

Delicious with sliced tomatoes and hot asparagus spears.

Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from my mom at my kitchen shower. She got the recipe from Gram (my father's mother), Lou Ceil Quirk Lewis. She got the recipe from my great grandmother Mrs. R.S. Lewis (Alice Margaret Carpenter Lewis). She had the recipe in the Fargo Cookbook compiled by ~ Ladies' Aid Society ~ First Baptist Church in Fargo, N. D. in 1905.
Jacqy and I would gag & cry when we had to eat this. We hated it!! In today's world we might like it. :)
