Are you ready for Sunday football night? Here in Pittsburgh tonight’s game is a MUST SEE. If the Steelers beat the New England Patriots it’s off to Super Bowl 51! In honor of football Sunday I thought why not whip up some winter cheese fondue for dinner! Cheese is by far one of my favorite foods, and fondue gives you an excuse to basically eat cheese for dinner. Just add some dipping accoutrements and you’re set! This recipe is incredibly easy and you can simply prepare it on the stove and transfer to warm fondue pot when ready to eat! Some of my favorite dippers include sourdough bread, roasted butternut squash cubes, roasted brussels sprouts, tomatoes, sliced apples, sliced salami, and cornichons.
- 10 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar, cheese
- 4-6 ounces shredded Gruyere cheese
- 1 rounded tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 cup German lager beer
- 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- A few drops hot sauce
- A few drops Worcestershire sauce
- Combine cheeses in a bowl with flour. Add beer to a small pot and bring up to a bubble over medium heat. Reduce the heat to simmer and add cheese in handfuls. Stir constantly, melting the cheese in batches.
- Stir in a figure-eight pattern with wooden spoon. When the cheese has been incorporated fully, stir in the mustard, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Transfer fondue to warm fondue pot.
