    Smile Welsh Rabbit (has no rabbit)

    Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit) is a cheese sauce used for dipping of heavy bread or pouring over toast. Recipes of this dish go back to the 1800s of England. There are many variations to Welsh Rabbit but the following recipe is the basic old way of making it. It has been used as a camp food for many years. Using a good quality sharp cheddar cheese is preferred.

    Melt in a pan, 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
    Add:
    1 tablespoon flour
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Mix everything well, cook for a couple of minutes.

    Gradually stir in 2 cups of graded cheddar cheese, keep stirring over low heat until cheese has melted.
    Heat 1/2 cup of milk, stir in gradually.
    Stir in 1 lightly beaten egg.
    Cook for five minutes then serve.

    For a gourmet version of Welsh Rabbit, try Alton Brown's recipe:

    Our family enjoys this recipe for lunch. I add a touch of mustard, and hard boiled
    eggs. We need to use our bounty. Really good with thick sliced sourdough, toasted,
    and then cubed. Left over garlic bread works well.

    Sounds good.

    How much cheese?
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    Hi there
    The versions I've had of this use a cup of beer instead of milk. Gives it a stronger more distinctive taste.
    cheers
