Welsh Rarebit Burger Detail

Open-face sandwich to the extreme.

Begin by dividing your beef into four sections. Shape into patties and make them slightly thinner in the middle. Salt and pepper each side.

Preheat a grill pan over high heat. Drizzle a tbsp or two of olive oil into the pan. Cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes per side (medium-rare to medium).

Meanwhile, begin preparing your cheese sauce. Melt butter over medium heat, then stir in flour. Cook until slightly brown and fragrant (3-5 minutes).

Add in mustard powder, pepper and paprika, then whisk in beer and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk until Smooth.

Add in cheese, half at a time. Whisk until smooth and melty.

Toast the bread. Serve burger and a healthy portion of the cheese sauce over top the toast. Garnish with chives if desired.
