  • Preparation time10 minutes
  • Cooking time25 minutes


  • 1 Red pepper
  • 1 Red chilli
  • ½ tbsp Olive oil
  • 15 ml Stork Margarine
  • 2 Red onions, finely sliced
  • 100 ml Balsamic vinegar
  • 150 ml Water
  • 1 Knorr Vegetable Stock Pot
  • 5 ml Maille Dijon mustard
  • 15 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 200 g Cheddar cheese
  • 4 Large slices bread


  • Preheat the grill until medium hot.
  • Place the red chilli and red peppers on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and place under grill for 5-8 minutes until the skins start to blacken. Remove the tops from the peppers and chillies, cut and seed, removing skin, then finely chop. Set aside.
  • Melt the Stork Margarine in a large frying saucepan. Add the red onions and cook on low heat for 6-7 minutes until soft but not browned. Add balsamic vinegar and cook for a further minute. Set aside.
  • Bring water to boil in small saucepan. Add the Knorr Vegetable Stock Pot and stir well until dissolved.
  • Remove from the heat and add the Maille Dijon Mustard, Worcestershire sauce and three quarters of the cheese, stirring well until the cheese has completely melted. Set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, toast the slices of bread on either side until golden. Place them on a baking sheet and spoon the onions and chopped peppers over each slice, so they are completely covered. Add the cheese sauce mixture, sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  • Place the rarebits under the hot grill until dark golden and bubbling.
