Worldly blushing bunny

Put the cheese, tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce, onion and pepper in a skillet. Stir over medium heat until the cheese is thoroughly melted.


Remove the skillet from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes for the cheese mixture to firm up slightly. Ladle the mixture onto the slices of toast and broil until the tops start to bubble -- but don’t let them brown. Garnish with the chives. Serve hot.

“Blushing bunny” -- and even more, the alternate names “rinktum ditty” and “rumtum tiddy” -- reflect the long popularity of this dish in the nursery. Chives, minced onion and a decided dose of Worcestershire give it a more grown-up effect, though this will always be comfort food.
