Fondue is one of my favorite foods. I make it every so often for special occassions. Last night, the neighbors came over for wine & appetizers. This recipe is super easy and always delish!
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese
6 ounces of good beer (ipa, lager, etc.) I used a winter ale
2 T. flour
1 T. worchestershire
2 tsp. hot sauce
several cups of chopped bread, veggies, meats or fruits.
I served this with apples, pears, grapes, and crusty french bread. You could add chopped broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, mini hot dogs, mini sausages, etc.
I mean really, anything covered in fondue is bound to be good!
Pour beer into medium sauce pan and bring to a bubble. Add flour directly to the bag of cheese and shake to coat the cheese completely. This is the trick to making really good fondue! The flour helps to blend the cheese into the liquid, making for a nice smooth fondue. Once the cheese is coated with flour. Add 1 cup at a time to hot beer. Stir with a wooden spoon continuously until cheese is melted. Add additional cheese slowly until mix is fully incorporated and there are no more lumps. Fondue should be stringy and thick. Serve with warm crusty bread!
