Welsh Rarebit


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.

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