We just found the greatest upgrade for your run-of-the-mill fondue: beer. Combine your favorite brew with sharp cheddar cheese and, voilà, instant appetizer. Just add dipping materials...or spoons.


1 cup beer

3 tablespoons heavy cream

1⅓ cups diced cheddar cheese

Bread, crackers and assorted vegetables, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. In a medium skillet over medium heat, bring the beer to a simmer and cook until the beer is reduced to about ¼ cup.

2. Whisk in the heavy cream and return to a simmer, then turn off the heat.

3. Add the cheese. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted (you may need to stir once to encourage even melting), 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with your choice of bread, crackers and assorted vegetables.
