I really did want to title this post “Welsh Rabbit,” since that is the name that this recipe often goes by, but I was afraid you would think I had gone and cooked up some small woodland creatures. But don’t worry, no bunnies were harmed in the making of this old-fashioned country dish.
In its most basic form, it is a slice of bread doused in melted cheese…but you know I can’t leave well enough alone, and so my version includes a thick slice of tomato, some beer and Worcestershire sauce stirred into the melted cheese (Vermont cheddar of course), some chopped parsley. And bacon. Because I think I have firmly established that every recipe is better with bacon. Right? Right! Let’s make it!
