   * 60ml beer
   * 4 large slices bread

  2. Stir in the beer, but do not make it too wet.
  3. Place the pan on a gentle heat, stirring until the cheese has melted and has become a thickish paste.
  4. Swivel the mixture aroung the pan, remove from heat and allow to cool a little.
  5. Meanwhile, toast the bread on one side only.
  6. Spread the mixture over the untoasted side and brown under a hot grill.

Serving suggestions

Serve either as a breakfast dish, a snack or as a light lunch with a side salad.
Variations

Cheddar cheese is often suggested in recipe books as being the best for this dish, so do use it if you are unable to find a suitable hard Welsh cheese.

Also you can substitute milk for the beer.
Chef's notes

Do not use Caerphilly (yummy though it is) as it is too crumbly and in any case most Caerphilly is now made in Somerset!

Do not use lager - you need bitter really. If you can find a Welsh one, then so much the better.

Did you know there is a holiday in honor of Welsh Rarebit?
It sure is! National Welsh Rabbit Day is celebrated annually on September 3rd. We found many resources to back that date but we did find one link that stated it was celebrated on January 24.

Various recipes for Welsh rarebit include...
the addition of ale, mustard, ground cayenne pepper or ground paprika and Worcestershire sauce. The sauce may also be made by blending cheese and mustard into a Béchamel sauce or Mornay sauce. Some recipes for Welsh rarebit have become textbook savoury dishes listed by culinary authorities including Escoffier, Saulnier and others, who tend to use the form Welsh rarebit, emphasising that it is not a meat dish. In the United States, a frozen prepared sauce by Stouffer's can be found in supermarkets.

Acknowledging that there is more than one way to make a rarebit, some cookbooks have included two recipes: the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book of 1896 provides one béchamel-based recipe and another with beer, Le Guide Culinaire of 1907 has one with ale and one without, and the Constance Spry Cookery Book of 1956 has one with flour and one without.

Varients:
The term rarebit is to some extent used for variants on the dish, especially buck rarebit which has a poached egg added, either on top of or beneath the cheese sauce.

Kentucky Hot Brown is a variant that adds turkey and bacon to the traditional rarebit recipe.

Welsh rabbit blended with tomato (or tomato soup) is known as Blushing Bunny.
