Cheese on Toast

In the news this week, a scientist/boffin came up with the perfect formula for cheese on toast.

Consisting of Wensleydale cheese, bacon, spring onion, a plop of english mustard on white bread.

I am thinking this could be a marketing ploy by the makers of Wensleydale cheese.


My mum used to grate cheese and mix with beer and mustard powder - YUMMMM.

I use cheddar, with worcestershire sauce on grind of pepper and tomato on wholemeal.

So whats your "perfect cheese on toast" recipe?

Cheese on Toast

I make a roux, then add milk for a white sauce, add cheese, L&P and pepper. Toast white bread both sides, spread mix over one, and grill till bubbly and browned on top.

One of my adolescent faves came from a British Rail buffet horror called "Grilled Cheese on Hot Buttered Toast". Toast white bread both sides butter and put Kraft slices on top (use two and overlap). Grill till bubbly and brown. Very downmarket, but I still like it!!

Oh, forgot to add....I use mature Cheddar. Morrisons basic is remarkably good and a little less expensive.

cheese on toast.


well i use tesco "everyday" cheddar and that is very acceptable.

I have actually also been know to use "burger slice cheese"
torn in shreds to overlap - but it doesn't melt the same?

I always toast one side, the flip over then add my cheese and what nots and then grill, till bubbling and parts have browned.

Basics ranges - cheese on toast

There's very little they can do to downgrade cheddar. The product is regulated. I wouldn't buy basic ice cream even for the kids, or other factory made stuff. However the basics tinned plum tomatoes and chopped plum tomatoes are identical to the finest brands and a fraction of the price. Caveat emptor!

food for the kids?

How bizarre to say you wouldn't buy basics ice cream 'even for the kids'. I wouldn't give junior anything at all that I wouldn't eat happily myself.

Maybe just don't give 'Cheesy Wotsits' to the kids!! :)

When my son was little I couldn't understand why parents took the kids to MacDonalds for a 'treat'. Seemed a good way to teach them bad food was a great idea!!

Trouble is that from a certain age they are taken out by their friends' families and they try these things at school. Kids hate to be 'different' and with some could lead to emotions not being dealt with and bottled-up....a breeding ground for mental health problems and secret snacking. I've always worked on the principle 'Almost anything's fine - once in a while'.

As soon as they are old enough to have pocket money they WILL eat Cheesy Wotsits and McDs, and probably not just 'once in a while' :(

cheese on toast

When I make cheese on toast it's just that. Toast the bread on one side turn over and put sliced cheese on top and grill. Sometimes I put sliced tomatoes on top and that's called cheese and tomato on toast. I also spread a triangle of cream cheese on top that's called Dairylea on toast.
Everyone has a different way of doing it but they all end up being called cheese on toast.

...or Welsh Rarebit, Welsh Rabbit (the origin of the term 'rarebit')...

Pedantic cheese :D

To me, there is a difference between cheese on toast and Welsh Rarebit. Cheese on toast is cheese, on toast, toasted. Welsh Rarebit (or rabbit, whatever) is cheese mixed with other things (like beer, cornflour , mustard etc.) on toast.

My favourite cheese on toast is Stilton, grilled until it just starts to turn brown on top, and served with a light smear of cranberry jelly (not sauce, no lumps!). Cheddar toasted until it goes golden, served with a few grinds of black pepper and a big splodge of Heinz Ketchup comes a close second! The bread has to be Hovis Granary for the perfect version :)

Welsh rarebit

My version is beaten eggs with lots of grated cheese, black pepper and sea salt and maybe a bit of butter. Put in saucepan and stir until cooked over gentle heat. Serve on hot buttered toast. My Mum always did it this way, don't know where she got the recipe from probably her Mum.

Welsh Rarebit

The Welsh recipe I have and use consists of:
Welsh Ale
Welsh Farmhouse Cheese
Flour
Mustard
Egg Yolks
+ 4 slices of bread for the toast

" My version is beaten eggs with lots of grated cheese, black pepper and sea salt and maybe a bit of butter. Put in saucepan and stir until cooked over gentle heat. Serve on hot buttered toast. "

That sounds rather like scrambled eggs on toast, with lots of cheese in the eggs. Sounds yummy:)
I always put a bit of cheese in scrambled eggs, but maybe I should try using lots next time!!

My cheese on toast is simple, like Violet Eyes. I do like having slices of tomato under the bubbling cheese and it feels healthier that way!!
