A real Welsh version of rarebit that is made with sharp Cheddar cheese and fresh thyme. Simple, and delicious! Garnishes are almost endless, from poached eggs, to sliced tomatoes, to pickled onions and piccalilli, to bacon. Really, put anything you think would taste good with toast and cheese on there, and tuck in.

My mother tried to get me to eat more eggs as a child for protein, however due to my intolerance to the taste and texture of cooked eggs she was unable to get me to eat them. It was when I was in my early teens I discovered I was capable of eating cooked egg yolk providing not even a trace of egg white was added, so she came up with this version of Welsh rarebit and it's been a family tradition since.

This is a delicious treat that's similar to cheese on toast, but better! Toasted bread is topped with a cheesy sauce flavoured with Vegemite and mustard, then grilled to perfection.

Cheese dishes can be the fastest around and it's amazing what you can make using ingredients you already have to hand. This classic dish makes a perfect quick weeknight snack.

There are many versions of Welsh rarebit (or rabbit). The one here is richly flavoured with mature Cheddar cheese and thickened with breadcrumbs to add texture, and is spooned over thinly sliced red onions before being grilled until golden and bubbling. A spinach, apple and celery salad is the perfect partner.
