where did you have it?

Welsh rarebit, Welsh rabbit, or infrequently rarebit, is a savoury sauce made from melted cheese and various other ingredients and served hot over toasted bread.[1] The names of the dish originate from 18th century Great Britain.[2] Rarebit is typically made with Cheddar cheese, in contrast to the Continental European fondue which classically depends on Swiss cheeses, and of which Welsh rabbit may be considered a local variant.[3]

Various recipes for Welsh rarebit include the addition of ale, mustard, ground cayenne pepper or ground paprika[4][5][6] and Worcestershire sauce.[7][8] The sauce may also be made by blending cheese and mustard into a béchamel sauce[3][9] or Mornay sauce). Some recipes for Welsh rabbit have become textbook savoury dishes listed by culinary authorities including Escoffier, Saulnier and others, who tend to use the form Welsh rarebit, emphasizing that it is not a meat dish. In the United States, a frozen prepared sauce[10] by Stouffer's can be found in supermarkets.

unless you had the frozen stouffers i do not understand how this could be bad

I carefully followed a recipe like above . The ale made it too bitter I think. Guess I'll just stick to grilled cheese.

I had this as a child in Williamsburg Va, at the King'sArms maybe???Any way not sure the place remeber the dish. My aunt ,uncle counsins and grandmother went and I didn't know what to order. I think I tried for a cheeseburger and with my little experince with cuisine my grandmother talked me into ordering this. I hated it but I was only 10-11 years old.
