    Recipe by Christine Byrne

    Pulse the cheddar cheese in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment until crumbly. Add the Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, cayenne, salt, pepper, and beer, and pulse until the mixture is combined and spreadable.

    Cut both baguettes into slices about ½-inch thick. Make sandwiches: Spread about 1½ tablespoons beer cheese onto a slice of bread, top with another slice, and then spread about ½ teaspoon butter on both sides of each sandwich.
