St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and if you're looking for a little something to get you in the mood for luck and all things green, please check out my novella, A Little Legal Luck. It is the story of a lawyer, a juror and the luck of the Irish. If you want a little something to nibble on while you read, check out my Irish cheddar rarebit toast recipe below. I add a little St. Patrick's Day twist to a traditional rarebit toast.
To everyone visiting me this week
May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!
Irish Cheddar Rarebit Toast
1 cup shredded Dubliner or other Irish cheddar cheese – I like Dubliner because it has a little tang like American sharp cheddar but with a richer flavor. I buy it at Trader Joe’s but I’ve also seen it at Costco and Fresh and Easy.
½ cup finely chopped chives or scallions, depending on your onion preference.
8 slices of English toast bread or thick white bread. I’ve found toast bread at Fresh & Easy.
1 tsp. mustard, yellow or Dijon. I prefer yellow, but some people like the Dijon kick.
1 egg, beaten.
Preheat broiler to 325 degrees or you can use a toaster oven. Place the bread slices on a non-stick or foil lined cookie sheet and toast one side while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
In a wide, shallow bowl, mix the beaten egg, chives, mustard and Irish cheddar cheese.
Remove the toasted bread from the broiler and pour equal measures of the cheese mixture on the untoasted sides and return them to the tray. Toast bread, mixture side up until the cheese is melted. Pour yourself a thick Irish beer like Harp or Guinness and enjoy!
