I have heard very interesting thoughts about what “rarebit” is, including “Peter Cottontail” concerns. The truth is found in the recipe. It is basically a heavenly, cheesy blessing of the Gods.
Rarebit when poured over toast, tomatoes or blanched broccoli will delight you each and every time. It is different and surprising and loves to include unexpected ingredients such as; bacon, chives, sliced & diced kielbasa or knockwurst. Let your imagination soar. Ask yourself what you enjoy with cheese and rest assured it will work well in or with Rarebit.
One final delicious and refreshing thought is Welsh Rarebit over toast, served with red seedless grapes, fresh sliced French bread for dipping and a chilled, crisp, fruity glass of chardonnay. I have to ask myself if life could possibly get better, when suddenly thoughts of dessert arrive in my mind; Carrot cake, prepared with raisins, walnuts and cream cheese frosting. YES…LIFE IS GOOD!
