Friday Feast ~ Irish Rarebit

2014-03-05 16.34.04

In my humble opinion, nothing tastes better than cheese on toast. This screams comfort food anytime of the day.

Yet, this is a quick and easy dinner meal–just add a side of salad and you’re all set.

An Irish Toast ~

“As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never face the wrong way.”



3 tablespoons Guinness draught

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon ground mustard (powdered)

Pinch of cayenne pepper

1 egg, beaten

2 cups Kerrygold Cheese (your preference)

4 slices thick sourdough bread

Smoked paprika

Combine the Guinness, Worcestershire sauce, mustards, and cayenne pepper in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer for approximately 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the egg and cheese, a little at a time. Mixture will be thick.

Toast the bread slices, lightly. Spoon and spread mixture over bread. Sprinkle with paprika and place under the broiler until the cheese is bubbling.

    . . . and I imagine you have to drink the rest of the Guinness with your supper? Oh what a hardship. This sounds wonderful.

  2. I love cheese, in all its forms and brands. But, whenever you share a recipe involving this tempting beer, I regret I can’t fly over to you and stop you wasting it in the cooking!

    I haven’t had this cheese, but love the butter! ;D
    Thank you for sharing the recipe.
