350g cheddar cheese, grated

100ml milk

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce or Henderson's relish

4 tablespoons of plain flour

2 tablespoons of English mustard

3 egg yolks

2 slices bread, toasted (or any bread that needs using up)

Few drops Tabasco (optional)

Alternative cheat option! Instead of making a sauce with the flour, milk and eggs, you can top with a mix of 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, mustard and cheese!

How to make Welsh rarebit

1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. To make the rarebit, gently melt the cheese in a pan, then add all the remaining ingredients, carefully stirring. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes then pour onto a lined tray and chill.

3. Toast the bread, then top with the rarebit and grill for 1 to 2 minutes until bubbling and golden.

Serve with a green salad and some tomatoes.

This is a great way to use any leftover bits of dry cheese which go soft again when cooked.

You can use frozen bread but it may take a little longer to cook. Or any bread or rolls you would like to use up!

Add ham under the cheese mix for some extra protein.
