    Words I never thought I’d say: “I have given up grilled cheese sandwiches!” Don’t worry! I’ve simply replaced grilled cheese with this Welsh Leek and Cheese Rarebit. Rarebit is a traditional Welsh dish which is often pronounced rabbit (but thankfully doesn’t contain rabbits!). In this version, I combine Wales national vegetable, the leek with a creamy goats cheese sauce to make an amazing rarebit. 

    Start by toasting some bread slices in a hot oven. Sauté the leeks in melted butter. Add the flour and mustard powder. Pour in the milk and cook until the sauce thickens and the raw flour flavor has cooked off. Pour the sauce over the toasted bread and grill for a few minutes until the sauce is bubbling. Serve and enjoy!
