  5. Add the Worcestershire sauce and ketchup and cook for 10 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove the pan from the heat.

  6. Slice the crusts off the bread. Quarter 2 of the slices to make small squares, leaving the remaining 6 slices whole.

  7. Press the whole slices of bread into the cups of the greased muffin tin, and brush with melted butter. Add 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese to each cup, and top with a quartered piece of bread. Brush the bread with melted butter.

  8. Bake for 10 minutes, until the cheese melted.
