Welsh Rabbit Recipe
The classic cheese on toast recipe.
Start your grill, broiler or toaster-oven broiler heating.
Grate the cheese. Mix together all the ingredients except the bread.
Toast the bread slices lightly on both sides, either under your grill, or in a regular toaster.
Divide the cheese mixture amongst the 4 pieces of toast, and spread it out evenly on them.
Lay the pieces of toast out flat under the grill, cheese mixture side up, and grill until golden and bubbly -- shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.
Serve piping hot.
8 oz / 1/2 pound / 225g of grated cheese equals 2 cups of grated cheese. Instead of milk, if you have any beer or white wine on hand, add 2 tablespoons of that instead to the mixture. In fact, to make the recipe completely traditional, add 2 tablespoons of ale. You can drink the rest of the bottle with your meal. To make a more complete meal, serve with cooked bacon or fish sticks and sliced fresh tomato on the side. For heartier appetites, allow 2 pieces per person. This recipe is easily halved or doubled. For a fuller version for breakfast, see the recipe for Yorkshire Rabbit.
