Goats Cheese and Leek Rarebit

A variation on the classic recipe brings this traditional favourite bang up to date. Goats’ cheese comes in a variety of guises. Choose a mild, creamy one without a crust so it will easily melt into the sauce. If you can get it use Y Fenni cheese which contains mustard seed and ale.


 Hundith Hill Advert

2 Medium leeks, trimmed, washed and finely shredded

50g/2oz   Butter

25g/1oz  Plain flour

1 x5ml tsp  Mustard powder

150ml/¼ pt  Milk

110g /4oz  Creamy Welsh goats’ cheese

Light sprinkling  of sea salt and ground black pepper


Cut Ciabatta loaf into 2cm/ ¾” thick slices. Place in a hot oven for 5 – 8 minutes to crisp and lightly brown. Rest on a cooling rack to keep crisp whilst preparing the rarebit.  Melt the butter in a medium size pan and gently sweat the leeks for two to three 3 minutes to soften but not brown. Stir in the flour and mustard powder. Gradually stir in the milk and bring to simmering point to make a thick sauce. Stir in the goats’ cheese until melted. Season well.  Generously spoon rarebit onto the toasted Ciabatta. Brown under the grill until bubbling and serve immediately.
