Why not try

Mature Cheese


  • 25g Butter
  • 25g flour
  • 1 pint of milk
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Dash of Worcestershire Sauce
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1tsp of mustard
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • 50g grated mature cheddar cheese
  • Sprinkle of smoked paprika
  • 4 slices of bread or 2 rolls
  • 1tsp of mermaid confetti


Melt the butter in a saucepan.

Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2mins

Gradually add the milk while continuously stirring to ensure you get a lovely smooth consistency

Add the bay leaf, Worcestershire sauce, nutmeg, mustard, white pepper and Mermaid Confetti

Simmer gently for around 5mins and season to taste

While the sauce is simmering, toast your bread or rolls and put to the side once golden brown

Stir in the cheese and allow to melt. Don’t re-boil the sauce or it will become stringy

Once the sauce is looking lovely, pour onto the bread. Add some more grated cheese (you can never have enough) and sprinkle some paprika over the top. Place under the grill until you have a golden finish

Why not try our DD twist?

We love to pile this dish high with our favourite toppings, our choice of topping always depends on our current mood. But a firm fave is to load it with layers of caramelised onions, sliced mushrooms and a generous amount of garlic!
