Amp Up Your Cheese Toastie!

Welsh Rabbit

One of the things I learnt reading Jane Grigson’s English food is that rabbit isn’t always rabbit!  Imagine my surprise when I’m reading the section of the book on cheese and there in bold writing is the title, Welsh Rabbit… turns out this term is used for baked cheese with bread and it is one the best cheese toasties that I’ve tasted and one that I simply had to share.   This will take a little bit longer to cook than slapping a slice of cheese onto a piece of bread and putting it under the grill, but the flavour is sensational and really does elevate it into a meal worthy of being paired with a glass of hearty red wine or a pint of Guinness.

Sunday night cheese on toast on a winter’s night will never be the same again.

This is another of my contributions to The Cookbook Guru, and proof that a recipe book doesn’t have to be full of complicated ideas, just recipes to stimulate the senses and get you in the kitchen.

      thank you so much, it was pretty delicious. Next time I think I might have to try making it with beer and see how that goes. 🙂

    I was intrigued to read about “rabbits” in Grigson’s book. I always thought this was called “Walsh rarebit” Dad used to make it for us when we very young, but like lots of dishes it faded into obscurity. Must give it a try for old time’s sake. Xxx

      Me too, we ended up having quite a conversation about the name of it at our place. I’m thinking next time it might be worth making with the ale to see how it turns out 🙂 xxx


  2. My hubby loves Welsh Rabbit, but alas it is something I hardly ever make him. He likes it with beer in the cheese sauce and bacon and mushrooms. Hang on, it’s not sounding much like a Welsh Rabbit any more.
    Have a super week ahead Leah.

      Thank you! It was a wonderful alternative to the standard cheese on toast, but does take a little bit more effort to make 🙂
