No bunnies were harmed during the making of this recipe!

For some reason, the cheese on toast I was raised on has become known on menus as either Welsh rabbit of Welsh rarebit, both names being a little confusing as not a bit of bunny is in any cheese on toast recipe I have ever seen. Apparently sometimes called blushing bunny as well, though I have never heard it called that. I must say I would rather have cheese on toast than rabbit any day. This is a super simple recipe, if you have the sourdough at the ready, it is really amazingly delicious.

I have a fond memory of my (car accident) injured dad looking after me as a wee tyke while my mum worked, and making cheese on toast over an open fire. To this day it is one of my favourite things to eat and always brings back that bitter sweet memory. Food does that, isn't it amazing? What is your best food memory? Worst? (Perhaps we shouldn't go there on a yummy food site?)
