Creole Rabbit (Rarebit)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

First off, there is no rabbit in this recipe. This is a take-off from the Welsh Rabbit with a New Orleans flavor. I recently moved my mother to a retirement home and this was in her recipe box. It says "For a Lenten main dish, omit the bacon and serve over fluffy rice".

We enjoyed this for lunch today. It's flavorful twist on the traditional rarebit. I used red pepper instead of green, but otherwise followed the recipe. There might be a mistake in the amount of milk needed - after adding the milk & cheese to the butter & flour, it was very paste-y, so I had to blend in almost the same amount of milk again.
