A classic recipe for a highly flavoured cheese on toast dish, Welsh Rarebit. Also known as Welsh Rabbit. This dish is thought to have originated in the 1700’s.
60gm/2oz of cheddar cheese per person
2 slices of toast per person
salt and pepper
beer – the more flavour in the beer, the better. If you don’t want to use beer you can use milk, an oil-based salad dressing or all three!
Put your cheese into the top of a double boiler over a gentle heat.
Add the mustard, salt and pepper.
Add some Worcestershire sauce.
Once it starts to melt add just enough beer to make it into a thick paste.
Add more beer if necessary once it has fully melted.
Spread the cheese on your toast and brown under the grill (or broiler if you’re in the US)
