      A rarebit is a tasty supper dish that Malcolm and I love! I cut this back by half - to make a generous double portion each. I followed the recipe to the letter and was rewarded with a tangy, cheesy rarebit. I am not sure if I would use the tinned tomatoes again - I would maybe add sliced tomatoes on top or cook them and place them under the rarebit mixture. The pepper sauce was not needed with the beer and Worcestershire sauce - but that is JUST my opinion! We really liked this Jackie - thanks so much for posting a different rarebit recipe! Made for the culinary virtual tour of GB........merci encore! FT:-) PS: I served this on toasted Scottish Morning Rolls - Baps, my mum's recipe!

      I used a rich dark beer and fresh tomatoes. Easy to follow and tasty recipe. The would be particularly good on top of an English muffin. Best fresh. Will reheat, but not as good as freshly made.

      Very delicious and savory! The beer I used (magic hat elder betty) gave it a nice flavor, and the cheese and beer combination was incredible and I liked it with the tomatoes. It made a lot! My husband and I enjoyed this very much, and we will again for lunch tomorrow :) Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT8.
