And shared Fanny Farmer's recipe for Welsh Rarebit:

1/2 pound sharp cheddar cheese, in small dice
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Cayenne pepper to taste (or Rooster Sauce!)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup beer
4 slices toast
Combine the cheese, butter, mustard and cayenne pepper in a heavy-bottomed pan, a chafing dish or the top of a double boiler.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the cheese has melted.  Beat a little of the hot cheese mixture into the egg, and then return the egg-cheese mixture to the pan.  Add salt to taste.  Add the beer and cook 1-2 minutes more, until very hot but not boiling.  Spoon over toast.
