We recently celebrated another birthday for Brent and decided to bring the Melting Pot experience home. We found a “copy cat” recipe for their cheese fondue. What a tasty adventure this was!
This is a savory cheese fondue made with beer not wine. Not as pungent flavor as many that I have had -- much more pleasant for the whole family.
Write a review
- 3/4 cup beer (I was drinking Dos Equis so that's what went in)
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1 T dry mustard
- 1 T Worcestershire
- 8 oz sharp cheddar (I used Tillamook)
- 3 oz swiss
- 1 T flour
- Shred or cut the cheese in small pieces. Toss it with the flour to coat.
- Combine the other ingredients in a small bowl.
- Heat a double boiler on a medium heat burner and add the flour-coated cheese. Let it soften a bit then add the beer mixture.
- Stir until mixed thoroughly.
- Serve warm.
- We kept the cheese in our double boiler pan at the table. We found that the boiling water from the bottom pan kept it warm enough for the 4 of us to eat and enjoy. We had more boiling water ready if it needed a heat up. It's also possible to use a small crock pot (ours was full of the chocolate fondue we were having for dessert) or a fondue pot (but remember to buy the sterno heat - which I didn't).
- The four of us dipped french bread, soft pretzels, broccoli (cooked al dente) and meatballs (warmed thoroughly) and enjoyed the flavors enormously.
