- Gradually whisk in half and half and keep stirring until it comes to a simmer.

- Season with worcestershire, ground mustard seed, and cayenne.
Thank you SO much for this recipe! A Springfield, IL, native living out of state, I can't get a horseshoes without making my own. Flavor was perfect, but I thought it was a little too thick so I used another cup of half & half and increased the seasonings a touch. It was a HUGE hit with the family, so I am making my alteration notes and filing this recipe with the favorites. Horseshoe are going to be on the regular family rotation, now!
