Fondue is such an easy crowd-pleasing dish. The ingredients can be readily kept on hand for delicious snacking and entertaining anytime.
Here is the basic recipe to tweak to your tastes:
12 oz beer
2c cheese (shredded or sliced)
cornstarch (if desired), to thicken
Dippers: apples, peppers, carrots, cauliflower, celery, pretzel rods, crackers, etc.
With the fondue pot on med-high, add the beer to bubble off the alcohol. Add the cheese and stir to melt. Season with spices. Reduce heat to warm and serve.
For this batch I used apple cider beer, colby& monterey jack cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, oregano, and garlic powder. Also works well with beer, mexican cheese, and paprika/cumin/taco seasoning.
Get creative and enjoy!
