Welsh Rarebit

  • Preparation 15 MIN
    Cooking 10 MIN
  • Servings 4



Topping (optional)



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Place the bread slices on a non-stick baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blend the cheese, crème fraîche, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and egg yolk until combined. Season with pepper (do not add salt as the cheese and mustard are salty enough).
  4. Cover the toasted bread with the onion confit. Using a knife or spatula, spread the cheese mixture over the bread and onion confit. Transfer to the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese mixture is melted and golden. Finish off under the broiler, as needed. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Topping (optional)

  1. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce, to taste.
  2. Spread the topping over the toast. Cut into wedges and serve as a snack or alongside a salad for a light lunch.


Welsh rarebit, with its toasted bread smothered in melted cheese, is a take on a croque-monsieur or a croque-madame, as it is sometimes served topped with a fried egg.
