Cheese and Beer Fondue
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 T flour
1 small garlic clove
1 can of beer
1/2 c water
2 T mayonnaise
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp ground dry mustard
vegetables-anything you can dip
Toss cheese with flour and set aside. Rub the bottom of sauce pan with garlic clove and then discard garlic. Add beer and water to the saucepan. Heat the mixture till warm over medium heat, gradually add cheese/flour mixture stirring constantly. It is best to make sure cheese is melted before adding more. Just before serving stir in mayonnaise, Worcestershire, mustard and stir.
Transfer the hot cheese mixture to the fondue pot, place over burner or small votive. It is important when dipping to swirl mixture a bit to keep it from setting. If it does thicken to much stir in a little more beer.
Dipper ideas: meatballs, broccoli, oven fries, bread, etc.
A vegie tray makes a good side dish and could also be dipped.
|I baked the meatballs, roasted the broccoli,|
and made the oven fries all at the same time .
