Welsh Rarebit / Rabbit

Welsh Rarebit is a strange dish. It can be served on any modern menu, and with the current fashion for comfort food, will go down a treat. On the other hand, in description it is cheese on toast, which can put some people off! Don’t be put off though; this is simple food, but delicious all the same. Trust us, you won’t regret it!

Welsh Rarebit / Welsh Rabbit Recipe – Method

1. Mix Butter and other ingredients together.

2. Spread over toast.

3. Grill until browned.

And To Serve…

It really is that simple! If you find you have difficulty browning the toast accurately, try browning one side of the toast a little before adding the topping. Also try the variation below!

VARIATION: Exchange the milk for real ale, but follow the same process, for a slighly more manly touch. A few other finishing touches; add a couple of slices of fresh tomatoe to the toast and a few drops of Worcestershire Sauce. Play posh, and add a sprig of parsley to each before serving!
