"This is a lovely cheese sauce on toast. It was my mom's recipe. She used to make this when she had to feed a family of 9 with very few resources. However, I remember this as some of the best comfort food. Serve over buttered toast. For an extra special dish, we like to top it with a fried egg." — Jennifer T.

thank god for women like your mom...and thank you for saving this recipe
I served this over toast with a fried egg on top, like the recipe suggests, and it was DELICIOUS! And easy to make! I used skim milk, as it was all I had, and it didn't seem to make a difference. This is definitely a keeper!
This is FOOD!!! It may be old-fashioned, but boy is this delicious. Just wonderful.
Lord have mercy! This is GOOD! I made it exactly like the recipe except I made twice the amount and used a mixture of pinto beans, navy beans and black beans. I tasted it to make sure its actually good, and finally stopped myself after the fifth big bite. This is comfort food and so tasty! We shall have it over hot biscuits.
Warm and rich. The fried egg on top is a nice touch. Not something you want to eat if you are trying to lose weight...but I'm not, so I had seconds!
Boy, does this bring back memories. It has been eons since I’ve heard the word rarebit. I used my Panini press to toast a baguette I had sliced lengthwise, and then added sliced tomatoes to the toasted bread, and gently grilled. I topped it with the cheese mixture which had the added bonus of the white beans. What a fabulous meatless meal. Thanks for sharing.
I would have never thought of adding beans to rarebit but it added a nice heartiness and texture to this cozy dish
So quick, easy, & delicious! I had a package of mixed beans that I used, but white beans would work just as well. I'll be saving this recipe for years to come! I made a large batch & added the leftovers to a pot of white chili that was being made-great addition! It thickens up very quickly, so watch it & stir frequently!
