1. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt, pepper, sugar, and breadcrumbs. Broil until tender and heated through, about 10 minutes. Keep warm while preparing sauce.

2. In the top part of a chafing dish or double boiler place butter to melt. Add prepared mustard, dry mustard, paprika, salt, curry powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir well.

3. Add cheese, stirring constantly until melted. Keep water in the lower part of chafing dish or double boiler simmering, but not boiling. If it boils rapidly, it may cause the cheese to become stringy.

4. When cheese has melted, add beer and stir through. Continue cooking until very hot and mixture is thoroughly blended.

5. Beat egg yolks with cream and slowly add to the cheese, stirring constantly.

6. Remove from heat stir in sherry, if desired.

7. Place broiled tomatoes on top of muffins or toast and pour hot rabbit over. Serve immediately.
