Main course from Wales - Welsh Rarebit

8oz grated, strong cheese (Mature Cheddar)
1 tablespoon Welsh butter
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1level teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons flour
4 tablespoons milk
Shake of pepper
1 Tomato thinly sliced
4 slices of Streaky Bacon (cooked and chopped into pieces)
4 slices bread toasted on 1 side only

Put the cheese, flour, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, butter and pepper into a saucepan.
Mix well and then add the milk to moisten.
Do not make it too wet.
Stir over a gentle heat until all is melted, and when it is a thickish paste, stop stirring, and swivel it around the saucepan, which it will do quite easily.
Add the cooked bacon to the mixture.
Leave to cool a little, and meanwhile toast the bread on one side only
Spread the rarebit over the untoasted side and place 2 slices of tomato on each slice
Brown under a hot grill.
This mixture can be made and kept in the refrigerator for several days if required.
Serves 4.

Welsh Rarebit is called Caws Pobi in the Welsh language.
