Have you ever heard of a Welsh Rarebit? If you think it's just cheese on toast, you'd be wrong – it is SO much more! And no, it has nothing to do with rabbits, either!
Here's the Wikipedia definition:
Welsh rarebit is a dish made with a savory sauce of melted cheese and various other ingredients and served hot, after being poured over slices of toasted bread.
This dish dates back to 18th Century Britain, and the cheese sauce has many variations. Common additions are ale (or stout), mustard, ground cayenne or paprika, and Worcestershire sauce. All of these are low carb – apart from the ale, of course! Although the sauce can be made as a white sauce with added cheese, the recipe I have here is even easier.
But first – what about that toast?!? I'm using plain bread from the Great Low Carb Bread Company.
This recipe is absolutely perfect for a cold winter's day when you want something filling and warming. So here's how to make it!
How to Make Low Carb Welsh Rarebit
In a small saucepan, mix together shredded cheese (something with a strong flavor would be good, like sharp cheddar), unsweetened almond milk, Worcestershire sauce, and dry mustard powder. Heat over a low heat, stirring frequently until the sauce comes together.
Meanwhile, toast the bread and preheat the broiler. Place the toast on a baking sheet (you'll probably want to line it, as this can get messy!), then pour the sauce over the toast. Place it under the broiler until the sauce starts to brown. Transfer to serving plates, grind some black pepper over, and enjoy this low carb welsh rarebit!
