Welsh Rarebit is a classic British breakfast that makes fancier the classic Lazy Person breakfast of cheese on toast. Many traditionalists call it by its original name, Welsh Rabbit, but as no bunnies are harmed for this particular dish, we decided to stick to ‘Rarebit’, a word that only is used when referring to this dish.
What makes it different from cheese on toast is that the cheese is enriched—in our recipe we use parmesan and mix it up with flour, butter, milk and mustard—to create a sauce, that is then poured onto bread. We also opted to go with thinly sliced baguettes just because, though you could use any type of bread you fancy. While other recipes may call for different ingredients like heavy cream, Worcestershire sauce, or even beer (Guinness to be exact), we kept ours as simple and easy to make in a Philippine kitchen as possible, so you can enjoy your Welsh Rarebit fuss-free first thing on a weekend morning.
