Beer & Cheddar Fondue

  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • Pretzel dipping sticks and sliced smoked sausage

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine cheese and flour. In a small saucepan, heat the beer, garlic, mustard and pepper over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-eight motion, until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, one handful at a time, allowing cheese to almost completely melt between additions. Keep warm. Serve with pretzels and sausage. Yield: 2 cups.
