These savory little gems will be the first party appetizer go! Make ahead the day before and refrigerate, or you can freeze them up to 3 weeks in advance. If frozen, pop in the oven straight from the freezer and increase the bake time by 10 minutes. We find that sharp cheddar works best for creating a super cheesy flavor, but feel free to experiment with your favorite flavor of cheddar–an aged white cheddar would be amazing here. These are guaranteed to be one of the best easy appetizer recipes you’ve ever made.
- 2 cups finely grated sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup butter softened
- 2 tablespoons half and half
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon table salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- Ground red pepper or hot sauce to taste
- 1 – 16 ounce package of www.GreatLowCarb.com Sourdough bread
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°. Beat cheese and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Beat in half and half and next 5 ingredients.
Cut crusts from bread slices; cut each bread slice into 4 squares. Spread cheese mixture on half of bread squares (about 1 tsp. per square); top each with 1 remaining square. Spread remaining cheese mixture over top and sides of sandwiches. Place sandwiches, 1 inch apart, on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
