Recipe: Shropshire Welsh Rarebit with a twist

Diwrnod yn hapus dewi sant!! To celebrate St Davids we've found the perfect Shropshire Welsh Rarebit recipe with a great twist!

As long as you use a nice strongish tasting cheese it will do the job, you can use Stilton or of course a nice extra matured Cheddar, any cheeses in that category that takes your fancy should be good. 

You will need (Serves 2)

  •  1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 15g butter
  •     120g Shropshire Blue cheese - crumbled into pieces
  •     50ml Stout   
  •     1 teaspoon English mustard
  •    1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • a good pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  •     2 jacket potatoes - cooked
  • salt to season
  •     2 sliced spring onions and a few baby salad leaves for serving

How to make it

  • In a small saucepan add the butter and melt over a low heat.  Stir in the flour and cook for a minute or so - this is important or your sauce will taste floury.
  • Now add the cheese, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.  Melt the cheese over a low heat stirring all the while.  Add a good pinch of black pepper and pour in the stout giving it all a good mix.  Cook without letting it boil until the sauce is a nice consistency - you can add a little more stout if you need to. 
  • Cut a cross in the top of each jacket potato and open them up seasoning with a little salt.
  • Top with the cheese mixture and pop under the grill for a couple of minutes, until golden-brown and bubbling on top.  Sprinkle with the sliced spring onions and serve immediately and enjoy!
