Easy cheesy tomato rarebits

Adam Gray's rarebit recipe makes a great speedy lunch or quick snack, as there's no roux needed for the rich cheese topping. The cheese mix can be made ahead and stored in the fridge or freezer until needed, meaning this gourmet cheese-on-toast can be rustled up in moments.
