Herbs & Spice Havarti and a lovely irish rarebit

4 servings


  • 1 oz butter (1/4 stick)
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 8 oz Castello® Havarti Herbs & Spices, grated
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp prepared english mustard (or substitute your favorite mustard, or omit)
  • freshly grated pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped gherkins or cornichons
  • 4 pieces of thick crusty bread, toasted


1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat, then add the milk and grated cheese, stirring until the cheese melts and becomes smooth. Add the vinegar, mustard, black pepper and gherkins; stir to combine and remove from heat.

2. Allow to cool slightly, stirring occasionally. Preheat the broiler (grill) then place the four pieces of toast on a baking sheet and divide the cheese mixture evenly between them.

3. Place under the broiler, until bubbly and hot; place on plates and serve with gherkins/cornichons and salad, if desired.
