How to Make Welsh Rarebit


  1. Place 4 yolks in saucepan on low continually whisking for 3 minutes.
  2. Then add the stick of butter, raise heat to low/medium. Continue whisking.
  3. In an oven of 300 degrees, place the halved muffins, buttered face down.
  4. Whisk in mustard. Raise heat to medium.
  5. Whisk in cheese a quarter at a time until all is in and thick.
  6. Add cream. Whisk until an even sauce. Then add paprika to taste. If you let it sit, it will separate. Just whisk more over heat.
  7. To serve per person, two slices of English muffin with two slices of tomato each side of the muffin. Ladle on sauce, garnish with parsley.
  8. I recommend serving with my other recipe, as seen in picture.
