Devonshire rarebit

Devonshire rarebit – Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 25g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon English mustard
  • 125ml Salcombe Brewery’s Island Street Porter
  • 175g Quicke’s mature cheddar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 slices of bread (we like the Almond Thief sourdough)

Devonshire rarebit – Method

  1. In a small saucepan melt the butter. Add the flour, mix quickly and then cook for a couple of minutes over a low heat, stirring to prevent the mixture from burning.
  2. Off the heat, stir in the beer a little at a time until you have a thick but smooth sauce.
  3. Add the grated cheese and mustard, pop back on a low-medium heat and stir until the cheese has melted and the mixture begins to bubble. You should now have a thick paste.
  4. Cool for a couple of minutes, then mix in the egg yolk, Worcestershire sauce and season well with black pepper. Leave to cool for about 15 minutes.
  5. Lightly toast bread, then pile up the cheesy mixture on each slice. Cook under a hot grill for a few minutes, until browned and bubbling.
