Another notable Welsh food tradition is Welsh Rarebit…What is that? That’s what we wanted to know…Here it is, and you’ll be so happy that you’ll want to enjoy this dish on #NationalWelshRarebitDay September 3, 2017.

Welsh rarebit, also known as Welsh rabbit, is a dish made with a savoury sauce of melted cheese and various other ingredients and served hot, after being poured over slices of toasted bread, or the hot cheese sauce may be served in a chafing dish like a fondue, accompanied by sliced, toasted bread. The names of the dish originate from 18th-century Britain. Despite the name, the dish does not actually contain any rabbit. There you have it! Melted Cheese on Toasted Bread – We’re in…we now fully understand why this dish has it’s very own national food holiday.
