More than just cheese on toast, traditional Welsh Rarebit can make a delicious dinner. There are many different variations of the dish using different ingredients but there’s never rabbit in it. Just be sure you use organic butter and cheese.

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 10 – 30 minutes

Serves: 4

Welsh Rarebit ingredients

  • 50g flour
  • 50g butter
  • 250ml beer, not cold
  • 250g grated strong cheddar
  • 2tsp English mustard
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 large slices of bread

Welsh Rarebit cooking method

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add in the flour to create a roux. Keep stirring for a few minutes to get a good consistency and to stop the roux from burning. 

Then slowly stir in the warm beer to create a thick yet smooth sauce. 

Add in the grated cheddar and keep stirring until it is melted. Now just add in the Worcestershire sauce and English mustard, and season with a little black pepper. 

In the meantime, light toast and butter the bread and then pile up the cheesy mixture on each slice. 

Finally, cook it under a hot grill for a few minutes until it starts to brown and bubble.
