Onto day three and I'm starting to realise that the right breakfast is able to carry you right through to lunch - yesterday's hunger was actaully just a rumbly tummy right on cue at lunchtime!! Only having enough oats left for one more portion of porridge and wanting a change from fadge. This morning we had welsh rarebit....
Welsh Rarebit Recipe
1 tbsp margerine
1 tbsp SR Flour
2oz Cheese *
1/2 tsp mustard powder **
* add what ever amount you have - this is what we had and was enough for 4 of us
** mustard powder brings out the cheesyness to a low amount of actual cheese
Melt margerine in a small saucepan, remove from heat and add 1/2 flour. Stir together briskly and return to heat, still stiring! Pull to side and add rest of flour - stir! return to heat and stir until roux is formed.
Pull to side and add a drop of milk, stir! Return to heat and stir Repeat method adding milk until a nice thick sauce is made. Stir in cheese and mustard powder until melted.
