A great tasting cheese dish, wonderful for snacks, can be made ahead or even frozen, great also as a sauce over Cauliflower or combined vegetables

So years and years ago my grandmother used to cook me what I fondly called 'spew'. It never had another name that I knew of. The last time I had this I was approx 14, and I am now 45 and have still been looking for the recipe. My friend advised me on what she thought it was called, 'welsh rarebit' and I started looking at recipes. I have tried 4 so far and all wrong, until now. I cooked this one tonight for dinner and I am ecstatic! This was EXACTLY the very same recipe and taste that I grew up with and now I can finally teach it to my 25 year old. I missed feeding it to her by about 23 years but better late than never. Thank you thank you thank you!
