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.
