St. David’s day - the patron saint of Wales

The “March Hare” is a hare who appears in Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. A hare is a type of large rabbit. March the 1st is St. David’s day - the patron saint of Wales. In Wales there is a traditional dish called “Welsh Rarebit”. “Rarebit” sounds a bit like “rabbit”.
For this simple reason, I want to show all of you, kids and adults, the Welsh Rarebit's dish.

Ingredients

25g butter
25g flour
150ml milk
175g cheddar cheese, grated
150ml brown ale
1 teaspoon of mustard (english mustard if you get it!)
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper
2 egg yolks (the yellow part of the egg)
4 slices of toast

Preparation
1. Make a sauce with the butter and flour, and leave
to cool.
2. Boil milk and then whisk it into the sauce.
Bring to the boil once again, whisking to ensure that
it does not burn and also that the sauce is free of
lumps.
3. Add the cheese, beat in and remove from the heat.
4. Reduce the ale, English mustard and Worcestershire
sauce. When thick, add this mixture to the cheese
sauce. Season well with salt and pepper and beat in
the egg yolks.
5. Spoon on to the slices of toast and grill until bubbling.
Serve with extra Worcestershire sauce.... and enjoy it with your family! ;-D
