Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit) - Sort of Toasted Cheese

"Nothing is more delicious that a well-made Welsh Rabbit, or 'rarebit'. It is easy to make but you do need to keep your eye on it! Have the toast made, and keep it warm, before you start cooking the cheese - which is best coarsely grated because it melts easily. From 'The Country Kitchen - Cheese And Biscuits' - Jean Hatfield."

directions

  • Melt the butter or margarine in the top of a double boiler over boiling water. Add the milk or beer; when this is warm, add the grated cheese.
  • With a fork, stir lightly but constantly until the cheese is melted. Season with Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and cayenne.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat, and stir in the lightly beaten egg, which will cook in a few seconds.
  • Pour the mixture over the hot toast.
  • Sprinkle with a little paprika if liked, and serve immediately.

    Followed instructions to the letter - extremely runny! Even tried adding another egg to no avail. In the end added cornflour which was fine - won;t be using this recipe again - lol, if KI remember that this time next year ;-)

    So this turned out more like soup, very tasty soup, but obviously not what i wanted. I followed the recipe exactly. I used milk ( skimmed ) would this have made it runny? i even added cornflour to thicken it, but that didn't help. Really don't know where i went wrong. Any advice would be greatly appreciated x

    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.
