    Pour the melted cheese over and bake (or put under the grill) to brown the top lightly.

    Serve piping hot.

Remarks:

It is important to use Cheddar cheese, the orange variety keeps the right mood. Use whatever beer you prefer. I like to use a Belgian white beer.

You can also serve Welsh rabbit with a fried egg sat on top (sometimes known as a buck rabbit).
