Real Welsh Rarebit


I once dated someone from Wales. While I rarely think about her now, I often make this Real Welsh Rarebit that she taught me! Welsh rarebit sounds really exotic, but in reality, it is just grilled cheese with a few extra ingredients including beer! Do you like the sound of this recipe? If the answer is yes, keep reading!

Cook flour, salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce with melted butter. Add milk and beer and bring to a boil before incorporating Cheddar cheese in small portions until fully melted. Serve this cheesy sauce over toasted bread or English muffins.

Kinda tangy and tasted far too salty for my tastebuds but my family enjoyed it so I guess it's a plus!

Had no idea there was supposed to be beer in this but I guess that explains why my husband and his friends prefer this sauce with their buffalo wings every Saturday night !!
