September 3, 2011 is

National Welsh Rarebit Day

It’s National Welsh Rarebit Day! Welsh rarebit is toast with hot cheese poured over it. It is often served as a pub snack.

The origins of this dishes' name are unclear. The Welsh term “rarebit” most probably means “rabbit.” Why would cheesy toast be called rabbit? The title is likely just a playful way to poke fun at the dish and those who eat it—much in the same way that “mock turtle soup” is not actually made from turtle.

Today, Welsh rarebit is a popular dish across Europe and in certain parts of the rest of the world. If you've never had Welsh rarebit before, National Welsh Rarebit Day is a great opportunity to try it for the first time!

I would say rabbit because it's quick to make. easily done by making toast and slapping a piece of cheese on it and melting it.

Interesting, sounds good. My dh is from Europe and hasn't heard of the day and has never seen cheese toast served in a pub but he said dishes like that are popular with tomatoes and stuff baked on it. I would try it.
