Alright, everyone agrees that it's better with beer. This is the version I've been using: INGREDIENTS 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup flour 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 1/4 tsp. dry mustard 1 bottle (12 oz.) beer 3 cups old Canadian Cheddar cheese, shredded 1 Baguette, cubed; each cube with crust INSTRUCTIONS In saucepan, melt butter; blend in flour, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Gradually stir in beer; stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; add cheese, stir until melted. Transfer to fondue pot; place over low heat. Serve with bread cubes. This recipe makes less so you can have it for two, and it tastes better because it uses beer. The older the cheddar the better the results. Add a few drops of lemon juice to help it melt.



We halved the recipe and used beer in place of the milk. Added a few extra cloves of garlic and tossed the cheese w/ the flour and then added it to the liquid ingredients. It was fantastic. I did remind me of the Melting Pot's cheddar fondue. I'm definately making it again. We served it w/ bread, green apple and cauliflower. I didn't rate it a 5 because with out substituting beer for the milk this would have been very bland.



Before adding the shredded cheese, I highly recommend mixing it with a little flour. This helps the texture a lot. Also, reducing milk base by 1/2 and substituting a white wine or light beer works very nicely to liven this up.
