I was talking to a lovely friend of mine last night and he was telling me how inspired he was by the changes I have made and how wonderful and creative a cook I was now (blush). This was very nice of him to say as I am proud of the kitchen progress I have made even though I am far from wonderful. I had earmarked some cheese in the fridge for a quick and simple cheese on toast tea but I was inspired by his conversation to do better than that.
So here is my recipe for chilli Welsh rarebit.
I toasted to slices of home made bread and spread them with some chutney I had made some time ago. I then separated an egg and whisked up the yolk, mixed it with grated extra strong cheddar, added half a teaspoon of mustard powder and salt and pepper. After whisking up the egg white to a frothy consistency I folded that into the mixture and spread the lot over the chutney covered toast (I knew this was going to be good!). Popped it under the grill until it was bubbling and then spread on some sweet chilli sauce. Finally a dash of the must have ingredient Worcester sauce and sat down to the best cheese on toast I have ever eaten!
If you ever fancy cheese on toast I urge you to try to upgrade it a little, the tiny bit of extra effort was seriously worth it.
Finished my tea with a slice of home made lemon and lime cake I had made earlier in the day to use up some eggs that were on their final use by day.
Not terribly pretty I know, because I should have sifted the icing sugar, but couldn't be bothered, but tastes wonderful.
Today work is starting in the garden on my decking! I can't wait. After it is completed I can get down to creating more flower and veg beds - this will make me very happy - and really get all my garden plans started well before Autumn.. I'll take and share photos of the progress of course.
