How to Make Welsh Rarebit with a Kick


  1. Preheat a grill pan (or any pan if you don't have one).
  2. Whisk the egg yolks with the creme fraiche and mustard powder, then stir in the cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Toast your thick-sliced bread lightly on the grill pan.
  4. Smear a good tablespoon, or so, of the chilli jam onto the toast, right to the edges. Spoon on 1/4 of the rarebit mixture, spreading it right to the edges.
  5. Grill the bread until the mixture gets hot and bubbly. Put onto plates. Use a knife to slice a criss-cross pattern onto the topping, then drizzle with some Worcestershire sauce.
