Welsh rabbit (Caws Pobi)
This dish, now often incorrectly gentrified to Welsh rarebit consists of cheese, mustard and sometimes beer, blended together and melted on toast.
There are records of its existence as early as the 16th century, when the bread would probably have been made with barley and the cheese made from ewe"s milk. 'Bucks rabbit' is a variation served with a poached egg on top.
