Leftover cheese? Make a Stilton rarebit

by Sarah Randell

Do you, like me, have a wedge of festive Stilton languishing in the fridge? This is a delicious way to use up cheese – a mixture of Stilton and mature cheddar works well, too, or use other hard cheeses such as Wensleydale in the mix. It all comes down to preference and what needs finishing up. Either way, serve with chutney, pickled onions and a glass of fine ale.

Serves 1, greedily


  • 2 slices thick-cut white bread
  • 1 small egg
  • 75g (3oz) Stilton, crumbled
  • 1 tsp grainy mustard


  1. Preheat the grill. Toast the bread on both sides.
  2. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg, then add the Stilton and mustard. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Spread over the toast, transfer to a baking sheet and grill until golden brown.
  4. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before eating.
