Hi Kind Friends!
Fondue is probably one of my favorite meals. It’s such a simple meal yet it pleases me so much! When I got my Crockpot (slow cooker) during our wedding shower (Thanks Henry and Lina!) Chris and I immediately thought about making fondue. It’s not something you would traditionally think of with a Crockpot, but we just aren’t normal.
On several occasions we’ve attempted fondue in a pot over our stove but the clean up just isn’t easy. The cheese always sticks and hardens at the bottom, making cleaning really difficult and time consuming. This does not happen with a Crockpot!
Check out the simple directions below. I recommend starting this before you get hungry because it does take an hour for the cheese to get to the right temperature.
Supplies (serves 4):
- 12 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese
- Beer can (we used Coors Light but Chris recommends using a lager instead)
- Seasonings (we used salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
- Things for dipping (we used apples, tortilla chips, and bread)
- Crockpot or other slow cooker
- Stirring instrument
- Turn your slow cooker onto high
- Add a quarter can of beer as a base
- In a separate bowl, mix the cheese with a handful of flour. Flour helps the cheese mix with the beer base. We got this tip from The Melting Pot!
- Add the cheese and flour mixture into the slow cooker and mix
- Add in any seasonings
- Mix again
- Let the Crockpot cook for one hour
- While it’s cooking, prepare your dippers. I am obsessed with apples and cheese, it’s delicious.
How do you fondue?
