Summertime . . . not only are we enjoying (or at least hoping to enjoy) warmer temperatures, but we are also enjoying being out of doors and not wanting to be tied to the kitchen when it comes to meal preparation! Simple, quick, easy, light . . . they fit the bill when it comes to summer time cooking. It does in my house at least.
Oh that it would be sunny every day so that we could just pile something onto the Barbie . . . not always possible and can get quite expensive, so there are some nights that I rely on easy and simple meals like this Bacon and Rarebit Quickie . . . .
It's as simple as warming some milk and cream, whisking cheese into it to melt . . . adding a few odds and sods such as some egg (s) and bread crumbs, Worcestershire and Tabasco Sauces, dried mustard powder, seasoning . . .
then piling it onto lightly toasted bread and grilling it until golden brown . . . OH . . . and did I mention there's BACON??? There is! There's a layer of bacon right there between the rarebit cheese mix and the bread . . .
I tend to cook the whole package of bacon when I have streaky bacon in the house, freezing some for later use in dishes such as this or for in salads or on pizzas, making meal prep even quicker. It works really well.
It probably takes about 15 minutes maximum to throw these together and, with a bit of salad on the side, they make for a really delicious supper that everyone loves!
Well, they do in this house at least!
