  3. Add the grated cheese and stir until melted. You should now have a thick paste.
  4. Mix in the mustard and worcester sauce, chives and season well with black pepper.
  5. Lightly toast and butter the bread, then thickly spread the mixture on each slice. Cook under a hot grill for a few minutes, until browned and bubbling.
