Cheese Fondue


  • 1 cup beer, white wine, or chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups cheese, shredded (I like a combo of cheddar and Monterey jack)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Melt butter in small saucepan on medium high heat.
  2. Add flour, salt, and garlic powder and stir with a whisk until it forms a thick paste.
  3. Add beer, wine or chicken stock.
  4. Heat until just boiling.
  5. Turn down heat to low, and add cheese, a bit at a time, stirring constantly until melted and creamy.
  6. Turn off heat.
If desired, transfer cheese sauce to a fondue pot.   
Serve with beer bread, polish sausage, steamed broccoli, and apples – or any other “dippers” of your choice!
This cheese recipe serves about 4. Double or triple depending on the size of your family or how hungry you are!
