Hi friends! I’m bringing you a late-night post for something so very important – the Spiked! American Craft Beer Recipe Challenge, hosted by Frugal Foodie Mama and This Gal Cooks! It’s a fun challenge these gals put on every couple of months, specifying a fun alcoholic beverage to cook with. And this time around is Craft Beer – and I thought it sounded like fun! So let’s get to our entry – this amazing Craft Beer Cheese Fondue Recipe!
Now my friend Erin is well acquainted with craft beer – her husband and friends even brew their own! So I called upon her knowledge and expertise as to what we should make. She snagged a recipe and ingredients and came over this past weekend for a fun Beer n’ Brunch! Disclosure – a few beers were lost during the creation of this recipe. We went with the a New Belgium Summer Seasonal Ale – yum!
Craft Beer Cheese Fondue
- 1/2 clove garlic
- 1 cup chosen craft beer we used New Belgium Summer Seasonal Ale
- 8 ounces shredded gouda
- 8 ounces sharp shredded cheddar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Dash ground pepper
- Dash nutmeg
- Bite sized pieces of baguette green apple, veggies and/or sausage
Rub the bottom and sides of fondue pot with garlic clove.
Add the craft beer and heat until steam begins to rise from the beer.
In a small bowl, toss together the cheese with the cornstarch.
Reduce heat to medium low, then gradually add cheese to the beer.
Stir continuously until the mixture is melted and smooth.
Season with black pepper and nutmeg.
Serve fondue immediately, with bite sized baguette, green apple, veggies and/or sausage.
This craft beer cheese fondue recipes is so very tasty! We dipped pieces of baguette, green apple (so yum!), potato, sausage, broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus. I think the baguette (I love my bread), apple and asparagus were my favorite. So very easy but oh – so tasty! You NEED to give this a try!
So at your next party or Beer n’ Brunch, whip out your fondue pot and give this craft beer cheese fondue recipe a try!
