Welsh Rarebit


Cut one or two slices of white bread about a quarter of an inch thick, and toast it on both sides and well butter it. Take half a pound of good Cheddar cheese, cut it up in very thin slices, and put it into a stewpan or cheese toaster with two tablespoonfuls of thick cream, a teaspoonful of mixed English mustard, a tiny dust of cayenne pepper, stir these all together over the fire till the mixture is like cream, cut the toast into square pieces and place them on a hot dish and pour the cheese mixture all over them, and brown it quickly in front of the fire or with the salamander and serve at once.
