Amanda A-mangia: Welsh rarebit

Welsh rarebit is posh cheese on toast. It is made with a savoury sauce of melted cheese and various other ingredients of your choice poured over slices of toasted bread and grilled.


225g cheddar cheese, grated

1 Tbls butter

2 tsp worcestershire sauce

1 tsp mustard

2 tsp flour

Salt and pepper to taste

4 Tbls beer or white wine

4 slices bread toasted on 1 side only


Put the cheese, butter, worcestershire sauce, mustard, flour, salt and pepper into a saucepan.

Mix well and then add the beer to moisten.

Stir over a gentle heat until melted. When it is a thickish paste, stop stirring.

Leave to cool a little, and toast the bread on one side only.

Spread the rarebit over the untoasted side and brown under a hot grill.

Small vine tomatoes, caramelized onion or grilled peppers can be added before grilling.
