Karen E, this is the first time I ever tried Rarebit and it won't be the last. Lovely flavor and textures. I used an extra old cheddar and toasted ciabatta bread to soak up all that goodness into the bread crevices. It was wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Beverage Anyone? Tag Game 2015.

This was good but I'm not sure why the site gave the measurements for the butter, beer, and cheese in metric units and the rest of the ingredients in US measures ( I used the tab for US measurements). Also, the cheese and liquid began to separate as soon as the mix cooled; thinking a little flour should have been incorporated into the butter to make the emulsion hold. It was edible but glad I did not try this for company.

This is an easy, but decadent dish. Definitely a great brunch item. I halved the recipe and just to make it more decadent, I added a poached egg on top of the toast with the cheese sauce over it. Delish! Made for the FYC Tag game, August, 20-14

Made for Zaar World Tour 8. I forgot to take some ingrediants with me, so have left out the sauce and pepper/paprika. This was delicious even missing some extra flavours. I can't wait to try it again with everything included. My boyfriend, who isn't a big fan of breakfast has been telling me how much he loved this dish. Thank you for sharing.

Made for ZWT-8, mainly because I'd never eaten Rabbit (Rarebit) B4 or understood what its mass appeal was since it seemed ordinary to me ... ordinary til I saw Andi's pic. Andi's pic told a true story cuz there's nothing ordinary about this. I used the beer option as DH always has 1-2 in the fridge I can make disappear for a good cause. He's salt-restricted, so I left that out. My guess is that this is the British version of "comfort food" (like the grilled cheese sandwich in the US) & it works if that's its goal. I know the recipe makes 4 servings, but it didn't go that far for the 2 of us (we both indulged ourselves w/an extra half portion). My orig plan was to make a half recipe (good thing I didn't), but I've never been very good at halving 1 egg & try to avoid it. DH is on vacation for the whole mo of Aug & is really enjoying the Tour. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. I'm now a Rabbit (Rarebit) fan. :-)

This was the very first dish I made in Home Economics in Junior High. I remember being so proud of myself for making such a yummy dish. LOL It was a tad on the salty side, it might have been from the brand of cheddar cheese I used. Next time I am going to leave out the salt. I used milk instead of the beer. Thanks for bringing back such a great memory. Made for February 2010 Aussie/NZ Swap.

This is my first time making Welsh rarebit and won't be my last. I don't like beer at all in any manner and so I used whole milk for the sauce. I found a fantastic grass fed New Zealand white cheddar at Trader Joe's last week and it worked perfectly in this recipe. The rarebit was served over homemade bread, too!: Our Daily Bread in a Crock - Weekly Make and Bake Rustic Bread Thanks for posting and introducing me to this classic dish. Made for Veg Swap #19-2010.
