As it's St David's Day on 1st March I decided to see what welsh recipes I could find. One that kept cropping up was welsh rarebit. I'm slightly ashamed to say that although I'd heard of it, I had no idea what it was.
It turns out it's a kind of posh cheese on toast!
- 4 slices of bread
- 60ml milk or beer
- 175g/6oz cheddar cheese
- 1 level teaspoon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 25g/1 oz butter
Pour the measured milk or beer into a saucepan and place over very low heat. As the liquid begins to warm, add the grated cheese, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to suit your taste.
Stir gently until the cheese melts and the mixture is sm
ooth and creamy. Next, add the butter and continue to stir the mixture over very low heat.
Toast the slices of bread on one side only, spread the mixture on the un-toasted side and brown under a hot grill.
It was really tasty. Even the toddler ate some and she doesn't usually eat cheese on toast. Another idea to be added to my recipe folder.
