Southern Welsh Rarebit (1867)

"Cut or grate a tumblerful of good cheese. Put it in a chafing dish. Add a piece of butter the size of a hen's egg. Light the lamp to the chafing dish, and put it in the proper place.

"Stir the cheese and butter together until they have melted. Season with salt and pepper. Now stir into the cheese a wineglass of good Madeira wine, and one well beaten egg. Mix these to a smooth paste.

"Remove the lamp and serve. Thin dry toast should be served with the cheese."
