Scotch Rarebit

Hey there, everyone. Today, we’re going to be working on a rarebit. Or, as it’s sometimes known, a posh cheese on toast.

It’s a quick and simple recipe but not so simple that it’s just slapping cheese onto bread and grilling it. That’s regular cheese on toast and I’d be embarrassed to post anything that basic.

How does today’s product hold up in light of that fact? Well, that’s the point of today’s review. You’re going to have to read on and find out.
