Mmmmm, cheese! :drool: I've been wanting to try this for a while, and I can't wait to give it a shot. Bread? Cheese? Yes, and yes!

I probably wouldn't eat this, but my husband would probably love it. I wonder if it would be good with beer mixed in with the cheese sauce like the original rarebit. I'll have to give this a try.
