Welsh rarebit

Welsh Rarebit (also known as Welsh Rabbit - although there's not a rabbit anywhere in sight!) is a delicious traditional British dish.

Welsh Rarebit consists of toasted bread covered with cheese that has been melted in beer or milk with mustard, pepper and Worcester sauce.

It's then grilled (broiled) and served very hot so the cheese is bubbling and golden brown.

Some people call it Welsh Rarebit and some people call it Welsh Rabbit...but no-one seems entirely sure which one is right!

There's lots of variations on the basic theme of Welsh Rarebit too - it's very versatile and easy to make.

In Welsh, the dish is called Caws Pobi which literally translated means "cheese roasted"!
