In its most basic sense, Welsh rabbit is a combination of melted cheese and beer. It is seasoned in various ways, however, depending on the cook. However they are made, rabbits are excellent fare for casual entertaining in fall or winter. Ideally, they are made at the table in a chafing dish or a decorative double boiler. They are best served over dry or buttered toast, and the choicest beverage to accompany rabbits is a dry white wine or beer.
