  1. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, and stir the Cheddar cheese and beer into the melted butter. Cook and stir until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes, and remove from the heat.
  2. Whisk together the egg, salt, dry mustard, cayenne pepper, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Gradually whisk the egg mixture into the cheese mixture, stirring between additions, until the egg mixture is thoroughly combined. Return the saucepan to the stove, and stir over low heat until the Welsh rabbit is hot and smooth.

Midnight snack worthy! I made it last night and I scaled it down to 1 serving and even cracked an egg and used only 1/4 of it and I was patient and it thicknened beautifully and it tasted like ...

Delicious and easy! This sauce makes a wonderful homemade macaroni.

I followed this recipe exactly except for I used medium cheddar (what I had), and it still came out great! My husband and I were very surprised at how good it was because we've only had the toma...
