One of my favorite things to do on a Holiday morning is to make a traditional British breakfast. Most folks in the US would assume this involves the classic Full English (fried everything!) However, in Wales, they have a simple alternative, that I just can never get enough of
Once you’ve tried Welsh rarebit, you’ll never want to have your regular cheese toasty again, as this moreish dish is just so much better. What’s more, it is incredibly easy to make this from a handful of ingredients and it is one of the best ways to start the day, or have for brunch
2 oz cheddar cheese – I bought Colliers Welsh Cheddar, which has a sweet, creamy crumbly texture and can be found in Trader Joes and De Ciccos here in NY , a couple of thick rough cut slices of artisan whole grain bread, 2 eggs, a 1/4 tsp of Worcestershire sauce, and a few drops of Tabasco sauce (if you’re feeling in the mood)
Preheat your oven to 425 f / 200 c, grate the cheddar in a bowl, beat in the eggs, add the Worcestershire sauce (and Tabasco sauce) and mix. Then pour the mixture evenly onto the bread and place on a baking sheet.
Pop it into the oven for around 5 minute or so, until the bread has toasted and the egg mix has browned. Serve immediately
Your Welsh Holiday Breakfast is served!
