Easy Cheese Fondue

Big traditional holiday meals are awesome. Sometimes, however, it’s fun to do something a little more quirky.

Sean & I love having fondue for special occasions – it really feels like a treat, but it’s super easy to make, clean up, & enjoy. 

Here’s the fondue pot that we use!

Our very favorite is cheese fondue, and we have found this recipe to be the best.

Combine the cheese, flour, and spices in a bowl.

Plug in your fondue pot. Add the bottle of beer and the garlic to the pot and bring to a simmer.

We like to keep the pot on a fairly low temp – it it still very hot!

Once the beer is slightly boiling, add your cheese mixture. Add one handful at a time and stir til it is all melted. It doesn’t take very long!

Dip & enjoy!

Here are our favorite dippers:

  • Pretzels
  • Crusty bread
  • Gerkin pickles
  • Green apple
  • Sausage slices
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Tortilla chips

Fondue pots can be bought anywhere, but I would recommend getting an electric one.

I have much better luck maintaining a constant temperature with this type. Here’s the one we use!

    What can you sub for the beer?

    white wine. I have never tried it but google says lemon juice or vinegar can work in a pinch. I would use only a small amount though. They won't have the good flavor of beer or wine.
