Welsh Rarebit

This is an adaption of a traditional Welsh Rarebit as this recipe doesn’t have any beer in it (mainly because I don’t usually have any at home but feel free to use it). I wanted it to be made from things I often have available, and who doesn’t like a bit of delicious melty cheese?

Ingredients (makes approx 4 slices)

2 cups grated mature white cheddar (creamy variety of your choice)*

1/3 cup chopped green onions

1 tablespoon mayonnaise*

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce*

1/2 teaspoon mustard

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

4 thick slices of fresh bread (I used a sourdough loaf)

*substitute these for vegan varieties, if required


medium bowl

measuring cups and spoons



baking sheet



1. | Heat oven to 375º

2. | Line a baking sheet with parchment, then set aside.

3. | Put all ingredients into a medium bowl and stir together until well combined.

4. | Spoon the cheese mixture onto four slices of bread and place them on the lined baking sheet.

5. | Heat in the oven for 10-14 minutes until the cheese has melted and turned golden brown and bubbly.

6. | Let cool for a few minutes then enjoy!
