Searching for an easy Welsh Rarebit Recipe? If you like the delicious combination of beer and cheese, you're certain to enjoy it broiled over crepes!
The history of the name welsh rarebit is rather mysterious. Several sources indicate it may be a variation of "welsh rabbit" which was a popular peasant meal back in the day.
Whatever the origin, it's no secret that this savory sauce is now a famous pub dish. We like it when broiled over crepes and topped with a tomato!
Boil beer in a small saucepan until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Next, add the cream and reduce the entire mixture to ¾ cup (about 3 minutes). Remove from heat.
Pour into a bowl and let cool to room temperature. Add cheese, egg yolks and seasonings.
Cover a baking sheet with tin foil and preheat broiler. Fold each crepe in half and then over again, into a triangle. Stack two triangles on top of each other, place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining crepes. You will have four sets of two crepes each. Now, spread each stack with a ¼-inch layer of welsh rarebit sauce. Repeat with remaining crepes.
Broil until sauce is golden brown and bubbly. Remove form heat and top with 1 slice of tomato. Serve immediately.
Yield: 4 servings, 2 crepes each
