Cheddar-Beer FonduePosted: January 1, 2009
To start off our New Year’s Day menu, we wanted a good cheese fondue similar to what we have at the Melting Pot. I found this FANTASTIC recipe on About.com. It is just like what we have at the Melting Pot, only better!! I will definitely make this recipe OFTEN!
- 1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 tbsp. flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
- Dash cayenne (or add a dash of hot sauce to the melted mixture)
- 3/4 c. beer
- 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
In bowl, combine cheese, flour, mustard and ground cayenne; mix to blend well. In fondue pot, combine beer and Worcestershire sauce. Set temperature at 375° and heat until bubbling. Gradually add cheese mixture and stir constantly until cheese melts and mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Reduce temperature to 200° and serve with crusty bread cubes or other dippers. We use breads and apples.
