Beer Cheese Fondue

Yields8 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins

 1 lb white cheddar cheese, shredded
 1 tbsp all-purpose flour (or cornstarch)
 1 cup German lager, K├Âlsch, or other lighter beer
 ½ tbsp spicy mustard (I use whole-grain)
 ¼ tsp garlic powder
 Pinch white pepper

In a medium bowl, toss the shredded cheese with the flour and set aside.


Add the beer to a medium pot, and heat until it just starts to bubble (do not let it boil). Add one cup of the cheese, stirring in a figure-eight pattern until fully melted. Repeat with the remaining cups of cheese until it's fully incorporated.


Stir in the mustard, garlic powder, and pepper. Transfer to a warm fondue pot, or keep it warm over very low heat until you're ready to serve. If you're eating it right away, you can also pour it into a ramekin or cast iron. Make sure to stir it frequently so it doesn't congeal. Enjoy!
