SERVES 4

Ideal comfort food for cooler temperatures.

Hearty snack or meal in Fall and Winter.

The sharp cheddar flavour is distinctive and makes an excellent, upscale alternative to a typical grilled cheese and bacon sandwich.

The texture of the toasted English Muffin provides a excellent base for the soft, thick layer of cheese.

Reminiscent of the traditional Welsh Rarebit, a popular comfort meal served in British pubs.
