The Dinner-Worthy Sandwich
Welsh rarebit is reminiscent of grilled cheese, but two of its features elevate it beyond the familiar classic: It's served open-faced and is topped with a cheese sauce instead of simply sliced or grated cheese—so it has deeper and richer flavor. Best of all, it's an incredibly warming meal that comes together in a flash; all it needs is a side salad and you're set. This recipe, from Melt It, by Becks Wilkinson, starts with a sauce made from sautéed leeks, flour, mustard powder, paprika and Guinness, or another stout. You add grated cheddar, Worcestershire sauce and then spoon it over slices of buttered sourdough and broil for three minutes, until golden.
