Melting Pot Bavarian Beer Cheese Fondue

kept byDAPHNE

Yield: 4 servings

Use a double boiler or substitute stainless bowl over a pot

• Don’t use cheese sold already grated. It is coated with additives and doesn’t melt as easily.

• Bavarian mustard is a sweet mustard made from coarsely ground and roasted mustard seeds mixed with vinegar. The sweet part of the mustard varies by brand, but is usually one of these ingredients: applesauce, sugar, honey, or maple syrup.

• The malty and dark Sam Adams Octoberfest beer, with notes of caramel and toffee adds a depth of flavor to this fondue. It comes in 12-ounce bottles. You will only use half of the beer in the fondue, so you may want to chill it first, then pour 3/4 cup for the fondue and a glass for the cook.

• At the Melting Pot, dippers include grilled bratwurst, pretzel bread, braised short ribs, roasted garlic Dijon potatoes, steamed carrots, and cornichons, bite-sized for dipping.
