This is a traditional Welsh Rarebit recipe which is not that common these days. I do have another version of this recipe which I called V2. Welsh Rarebit was popular during the 80s but now seems to be a relic of the past. However if you miss Welsh Rarebit and want to make it again then try this recipe. If you have never eaten this one one before then try it. Enjoy!


1 slice bread – plus ¼ teaspoon butter
2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon plain flour
¼ cup milk
30 g cheese, grated
½ teaspoon mustard
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


Toast bread and spread with the quarter teaspoon of butter.

Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a saucepan, add flour, stir well, add milk and stir until boiling. Boil one minute.

Remove from the heat, add cheese, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until cheese is melted.

Spread the mixture on toast and place under a grill until golden brown. Cut each slice into four fingers and serve.


Similar to the other recipe for Welsh Rarebit, however this is the more common recipe.
Can be kept for a couple of days covered tightly with cling wrap in the refrigerator – stir thoroughly before re-use.
