Now I woke up this morning, grimly prepared to walk the dog in the freezing weather, but with a good attitude. No water in my bathroom probably because the pipes, only in my bathroom, are frozen. Bizarre. But no worries. I went over to Jade’s bathroom for the morning’s ablutions, called my husband on Skype and whined. Felt better.
Even better yet, Frugal, one of my favorite Welsh bloggers posted a recipe for Welsh rarebit http://frugalfeeding.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/keeping-alive-a-tradition-3-welsh-rarebit/ and inspired me to make my own version. Thanks Frugal!
Okay, Edam was not a good cheese choice and I knew it wasn’t; good tasting but doesn’t melt well. But it’s what I had on quick notice. To get that fluid, melty, Frugal goodness, use cheddar or something else.
100 grams thawed Edam cheese
1 tsp American, yellow French’s mustard
4 tbsp 1664 Kronenbourg French beer
1 tbsp Savoie butter
Whole grain Carrefour brand bread
Piment d’Espelette (hot paprika)
Melt the cheese in the mustard, butter and beer. Toast the bread, pour the melted cheese over and broil until golden. Sprinkle with the piment.
Wine suggestion: Champagne
