Last night Kailey and Rick came down to spend the night before a friends wedding on Saturday. Rick and requested fondue. So after a mad dash to the garage to the packed boxes with the fondue pots, we were in business!
My cheese fondue is a recipe that was given to me by Chris’ stepmom Joan. She has been making it for years and I am not sure where it originally came from. It is the kids favorite. We do the basic meat platter with chicken, steak and shrimp. I marinated them separately in A1 marinade.
2 Tbsp. Flour
1 lb. cheddar cheese
1 can of beer
1 package lipton onion soup
Pour half of beer in large bowl with flour and mix together. Microwave on high heat for one minute, and stir. Add just the onion bits from the lipton onion soup ( a little of the soup base is ok too, but too much will turn the cheese sauce brown) once the beer/flour mixture is hot. Then add in cheese. (I cut it into cubes for easier melting.) Keep heating in microwave, and stirring till you get the desired consitancy. Add more beer as needed.
Serve with bread, fresh vegetables, or anything you think would be good dipped in cheese sauce!
