Leeky Welsh Rarebit

This is a slightly more complex version of cheese on toast. The leeks add a good flavour and texture to the topping.


  • 2 leeks, washed, tops and ends remove and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 250ml hot water
  • 300g cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Fry the leeks in the oil in a large sauce pan until soft. This will probably take between 5 and 10 minutes over a medium heat.
  2. Toast the slices of bread in a toaster while the leeks cook.
  3. Once the leeks are cooked, add the water and stock cube to the leek mixture and bring to a simmer.
  4. Turn the grill on to high.
  5. Find a deep oven proof dish and place the slices of toast on the bottom of it.
  6. Add the grated cheese to the leek and stock mixture and stir until it's all melted.
  7. Pour the melted cheese mixture over the slices of toast and spread out so that the toast is well covered.
  8. Place under the grill and cook until the cheese on top is nicely browned.
  9. Serve immediately so that it's all still warm.

Serves 2.
