The first written record of the term Welsh rabbit:
"I did not eat of cold beef, but of Welsh rabbit and stewed cheese."
John Byron, ‘Literary Remains’ (1725)
“Rarebit, n. A Welsh rabbit, in the speech of the humourless, who point out that it is not a rabbit. To whom it may be solemnly explained that the comestible known as toad-in-the-hole is really not a toad, and that 'riz-de-veau a la financiere' is not the smile of a calf prepared after the recipe of a she banker.”
Ambrose Bierce, American writer (1842-1914)
‘The Devil's Dictionary’ (1906)
