Leek and Cheddar Rarebit Recipe

This Welsh-inspired recipe makes for a cheesy (and easy!) recipe to whip up during a busy afternoon. We recommend using up that half a block of mature cheddar that you’ve got floating in the fridge.

Serves 4 Total Time 25 mins


  • 40g unsalted butter
  • 2 leeks, halved and finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard 
  • 100g strong cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 slices of stale bread 
  • splash of Worcester sauce


  1. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium to low heat. Add the leeks and mustard and stir to coat.
  2. Pop the lid on and sweat the leeks for about 10–15 minutes until meltingly soft and tender. Season to taste. 
  3. Heat the grill and toast the bread lightly. Spread the leek mixture thickly over the bread and top with the grated cheese.
  4. Grill until bubbling and golden and serve straight away with a splash of Worcestershire sauce if you like.
