Daddy's Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit)

This was my father's recipe. With his coastal southern accent, it always sounded like he was saying "Welsh Rabbit." Only when I was older did I discover there was nothing rabbit about this rare bit! I think he always used milk as the liquid in his recipe, and that was usually a can of evaporated milk. I have used the traditional beer in mine, but either works well. My father always used extra sharp Cheddar. In these pictures, I have used white Cheddar and Gouda. You serve it over toast points. A favorite of my family when we were children, and also of my own children.

How to Make Daddy's Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Melt butter in medium skillet over medium-low heat. When melted, stir in flour and continue to stir until well mixed and foamy. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute.
  • 2SLOWLY stir in milk (or beer) until a smooth sauce forms. Stir constantly so lumps break up and sauce smooths out.
  • 3Stir in grated cheese, and continue to stir until cheese melts completely and is well-blended. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce.
  • 4Reduce heat to warm; keep warm and stir cheese sauce occasionally while preparing toast.
  • 5Thick sliced homemade bread works best, or use Texas Toast. Cut toasted bread into triangles. Arrange triangles on plate and top with about 1/2 cup or more cheese sauce.
