An Island Treat: Skillet Cheese Toast

When Adam and I travel, we like to stay at hotels, condos and houses that allow us to cook our own food. One of our favorite foods to cook on vacation (and one of my favorite foods of all time, period) is Skillet Cheese Toast. My mom made us for this when we were kids and it is oh-so-amazing! If you like cheese, you will LOVE this!

Whether we on are on the South Island of New Zealand....

Or on the Island of Maui......

Or on Beaver Island in Michigan.....

Adam making SCT in Te Anau, NZ.
...we find a way to incorporate Skillet Cheese Toast into our eating plan! As you will see in the recipe below, SCT requires very few ingredients, all of which can be found at even the most remote grocery store. Also, minimal cooking materials are required- even the cheese grater can be substituted with fine chopping if needed.

The Ingredients:

2 8-ounce package Muenster cheese, shredded
3 tbsp yellow mustard
3 tbsp Worchestershire sauce
2 egg yolks
4 tbsps butter or margarine
1 loaf of Italian bread, sliced into 1-inch thick diagonal slices
dash of ground pepper
salt to taste

Here's a shot of the toast before it hits the oven:

Mix cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and egg yolk. Set aside. Melt 4 tbsps butter in non-stick frying pan 2 tbsps at a time until golden brown (on one side). Turn the bread over. Top each slice (the grilled side) with some of the cheese mixture. Place the bread slices on a cookie sheet and broil until cheese mixture is hot and bubbly, about 3 minutes.

And the finished product:
