Super Bowl Sunday Cheese Fondue
Super Bowl XLVI is almost here! This means many of us will be sitting in front of our TV’s for the big event, if only to watch the commercials and halftime show. The Super Bowl is also a great excuse to get together with friends. This year, put on your game face and prepare to host the best Super Bowl party of the year.
No football party would be complete without a menu filled with pigskin inspired grub. You have the essential hot dog, burgers, chips and beer, but how about adding the best ever Cheese Fondue to your game day spread.
This recipe is from my good friend Dani, who always has the best spread at any party. She is a great cook, but me, not so much. So, if I can make this, anyone can. It’s super easy. All you need is the following:
1 (8oz) package shredded cheddar cheese
1 (8 oz) package shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (8 oz) package softened cream cheese
1 cup beer (we usually use Budweiser or Miller Lite but you can vary the taste with the type of beer you choose. For example, using a tasty lager like Yuengling or the super cheap Pabst Blue Ribbon.)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
- Melt the cream cheese in a large saucepan over medium heat
- Stir in the cheddar, mozzarella, beer and garlic salt. Stir constantly, until all the cheese is melted.
- Serve in a small Crock Pot or fondue pot to keep warm.
Best served with large soft pretzels (cut up) and Granny Smith apple slices for dipping. We always have to make a double batch because it goes so fast. Trust me, serve this at your next party and not only will your guests be thanking you, they’ll be asking for the recipe.
About Rachel B
I am currently a Stay at Home Mom of 2 wonderful kids. Before I had kids I worked as a Photographer and then a Contract Administrator. Now I spend my days being a room mom, managing my daughter's food allergies (peanuts and tree nuts), and overseeing homework. I have discovered a joy for running, having completed five 5K races, and have a whole new outlook on being fit and staying fit. Because of my daughter's food allergies, I have taken up cooking from scratch and find that it is not as hard as I imagined. I still enjoy curling up with a good book (am in search of a good book group), creating things (whether it be handmade cards, themed parties, holiday decorations, crafts for school, gifts for friends and family), and photographing and documenting our daily lives through scrapbooks and my blog, Unscripted.

I love pita chips, but every time I buy a bag, no matter how well I hide them, my kids inhale them. At upwards of $4 a bag that is an expensive treat that might last 60 seconds. I found … Continue reading →
