Tomato-Bacon Rarebit

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


4 servings

I've had an interest in cooking and baking since I was a young girl and love to experiment with recipes. With bacon and tomatoes, this is a tasty takeoff on a classic Welsh dish.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices white bread, toasted
  • 12 bacon strips, cooked and drained
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; add the Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, paprika and cheese. Cook and stir until cheese is melted.
  2. Place toast on plates; top each piece with three bacon strips, two slices of tomato and cheese sauce.
