Horseshoe Sandwich with Cheese-Beer Sauce

From I'll Have What They're Having: Legendary Local Cuisine

Frozen french fries, to taste

Sauce:

2 egg yolks
1/2 cup beer
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red (cayenne) pepper
Sandwiches:
8 slices toasted white bread
1-1/2 pounds (or to taste, for thicker sandwiches) sliced baked ham
Dash ground paprika
Yields 4 servings.

Prepare frozen french fries according to package directions. Keep warm until serving time.

To prepare sauce: In a small bowl, combine egg yolks and beer until mixed; set aside. In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt butter and Cheddar cheese. Add Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper; stir until well mixed. Add egg mixture, a little at a time, stirring constantly.

 

Cook and stir until mixture thickens and begins to bubble around the edges. Remove from heat and keep warm until sandwiches are assembled.

To prepare sandwiches: Place 2 slices of toasted bread side by side on 4 individual serving platters; top each piece of bread with ham. Leave open-faced and cover with sauce and mound a large amount of french fries on top and along the sides. Sprinkle with paprika, to garnish. Serve immediately.

Variation: 1 cooked hamburger patty atop each slice of bread can substitute for the ham.
