Whisk in cream and milk and heat.
Whisk in cheese until melted.

Quarter toast and place in an oven safe dish.

Note: This is a regional favorite that originated at Louisville's Brown Hotel earlier in this century.
Many variations can be found, most commonly country ham is added and a cheddar sauce is substituted.
This is our version which I feel is closer to the original recipe.
