Melting Pot Cheddar Cheese Fondue





Melting Pot Cheddar Cheese Fondue

Serves: 3-4

Ingredients:

6 ounces medium sharp cheddar cheese
2 ounces Emmenthaler Swiss Cheese
4 ounces of Your favorite light beer such as Bud Light
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons dry mustard powder

If you are using a fondue pot turn it onto medium heat, otherwise, use a double boiler to heat this mixture in. Place beer, garlic, mustard powder, and Worcestershire sauce, and combine well. Shred or cube all cheese, and toss with flour, coating cheese well. The flour will help thicken the sauce. When the beer mixture is warm add one third of the cheese into the mixture, and whisk very well. Once the cheese has been incorporated well, add second third of cheese, whisk in very well, and add in the remaining cheese and whisk until nice and smooth.


Now you can serve this fondue with lots of bread, I recommend pumpernickel, wheat, sour dough, I also love this with green apples. You must eat this dish in one setting, this doesn’t reheat well, nor does it do well if you make it in advance to eat later. So this is the fun type of dish you want to make on the spot.

If you do not wish to make this with beer, I can not give you a suggestion for the beer, other than a product like “O’Doules” or “Near Beer”. The beer flavor really adds a lot to this dish.

While you don’t need this fondue pot to make fondue, making fondue with an electric fondue pot is a much easier.
