Preparing for St. Patrick's Day

Are you feeling lucky? Well, are you?
Are you feeling cheesy? Well, are you?
If so, then you've come to the right blog.

It's March which means it's time to whip out the green and enjoy a little luck o' the Irish.

Why not whip up some Irish Cheddar Rarebit Toast to enjoy with your Guinness?  It's a simple but very flavorful recipe that you will love!

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. 

While you're enjoying your St. Patrick's Day treats, why not check out my novella
because it's a quick read and a great way to get in the mood for St. Patrick's Day.

This sounds really yummy. The only thing I know of to be traditional is the corn beef and cabbage because my mom made that every year around this time. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Countdown in Style! Don't forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured :)
