Cheddar and Beer Fondue

If you like a mild beer flavor choose a pale ale. If you like a strong beer flavor then go for a dark ale. Regardless, choose an old cheddar for that full cheesy flavor.
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 c. beer
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 drop red pepper sauce
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese, diced or shredded

In medium-sized heavy bottom saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Blend in flour and dry mustard.

Over medium heat, gradually add beer, then milk, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and comes to a boil.

Stir in Worcestershire sauce and red pepper sauce. Reduce heat to low.

Add cheese by handfuls, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted.

Transfer to a ceramic fondue pot and keep warm over burner. Serve with French or pumpernickel bread cubes, bread sticks or fresh vegetables.
