I’m talkin’ about Welsh Rabbit. Don’t let anybody tell you it’s “rarebit” ’cause they’re just lyin’ to ya. It’s rabbit, because the “joke” was that the Welsh were too poor to afford as cheap a dish as rabbit. Well, the larf’s on whoever made that “joke,” because Welsh Rabbit is scrumptious.
There are as many ways to make Welsh Rabbit as there are ways to make chili. Here’s mine.
- Toasted bread
- much grated cheese
- a bit of milk
- a beaten egg
Melt the cheese in the milk, stirring until the cheese is good and melty. Beat a little into the egg. Keep adding the melted cheese to the egg, stirring all the while, until the egg is good and hot and mixed in with the cheese. Pour it all back into the cheese pan and hot it all up, stirring constantly.
Pour the melted cheese/egg over the toasted bread.
You can add herbs and spices, if you like. You can use whatever cheese you have around. One guy suggests using stout instead of the milk, and I’m all for that, but I didn’t have any.
Here’s what our looked like, with a sprinkle of paprika over it for pretty.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character takes umbrage at a “joke” aimed at their ethnicity or national origin.
