Cornish rarebit

To plate

  • 1 loaf of bread, sliced


Grate the cheddar and place in a saucepan with the beer over a medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese melts and the mixture starts to bubble
Stir in the flour, breadcrumbs, and mustard and continue cooking until the mixture comes cleanly away from the sides of the pan and forms a ball. Remove from the heat and leave to cool
Once cool, beat in the egg yolks until you have a smooth mixture, then the rarebit is ready to use. Spread across some slices of bread and pop under the grill until bubbling. Cut into soldiers and serve immediately
