Cheddar Stout Fondue with roasted vegetables

Cheese fondue is interactive, delicious, and a great way
to gather friends and family around the table!  

Cheddar Stout FondueFondue is a Christmas Eve tradition for our family.  Every year since forever, even when the kids where little, we have done fondue with my dad and my sister and her husband.  It’s an event, that takes the whole evening.  We usually pause between courses to open gifts or play a game,  we start with Cheese Fondue, move on to the meat in hot broth or oil, and end with chocolate fondue.

Cheddar Stout Fondue with Roasted VegetablesBesides dipping bread in the cheese, we love dipping roasted vegetables.  Not only do they taste delicious they look so pretty on the platter; which makes for a very festive party!  Roasted vegetables are easy to prepare, and can be made ahead of time.  You could also dip cubes of bread, gherkins, slices of apple, pretzels, the list goes on and on.  Honestly, I think everything is amazing dipped in warm gooey cheese.  Can I get an Amen?!

Making fondue is quick and easy.  Let me show you just how easy it is!

Cheddar Stout FondueThis is all you need.  Cheese, Stout, Apple Cider, Dijon Mustard, and a little flour, well and a fondue pot of course!  If you don’t have a pot, I bet someone you know does and they would let your borrow it!!

Grate the cheese, toss with flour, set aside.  Add stout, cider, and mustard to the pot bring to a simmer and gradually add in the cheese continuing to stir until smooth!  That’s it.  If you can’t find a stout you could use any better quality beer or ale, but a stout balances out the sharp cheddar the best.  It almost looks like caramel, don’t you think?!
