Anyone got a tried and tested Welsh rarebit recipe? We’re having a few friends for farewell drinks on Saturday. I thought I’d do a Welsh themed supper.
Maybe even cawl or selsig morgannwg?
I’ve always like Delia’s
The more mature the cheddar, the better. Though how traditional this recipe is I don’t know!
A vegetarian coffee shop called Hunky Dory’s in Casnewydd did a great Welsh rarebit - their secret was to use two thick slices of brown toast, both buttered, and then top that with the rarebit. They offered optional extras, such as topping with garlic mushrooms - pretty sure that bit was non traditional though!
This is a Welsh Rarebit often enjoyed by myself and my guests. It’s by the Hairy Bikers (2 honorary Welshmen) http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/welsh_rarebit_05821.pdf
If I want to do an interesting main dish with the Welsh ingredients of lamb, honey, cider, I prepare Cig Oen a Mel from “Taste of Wales”
This cooks very well in a slow cooker/mijoteuse.
Wna i gad i chi wybod os breuddwydio ofnadwy yn dod!
Diolch pawb! I made Welsh rarebit for work once but doubling the recipe made the beer taste too strong. Out of interest, what strong beer would you recommend? Guinness?
Something quite dark and bitter from a craft brewery. Or Rev James if you can get hold of it and don’t mind cooking with it!
I migh struggle to get a Reverend James. And you’re right. It would be a sin to cook with it.
Toohey’s Old or James Squire Porter would be very acceptable substitutes.
New England Brown Ale is ideal!
I will take this list to the shop tomorrow.
