Recipe by shelbyrose

Our son and his fiance enjoy making fondue for little get-togethers. This is one tasty recipe that's a little different from the traditional fondued meat.

This didn't quite come out as good as I'd hoped. The meatball recipe was good and the batter recipe was good, they just didn't work well together. The batter kept falling off into the fondue pot. Ended up just cooking the meatballs and using the batter as a tempura to coat veggies. Will probably make both again, but separately.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the mustard sauce and horseradish sauce in separate bowls; set aside (or prepare ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to serve).
  2. Make meatballs by mixing the meat, beaten egg, bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons beer and garlic salt, combining well.
  3. Shape into 3/4 inch balls.
  4. Place on a serving plate.
  5. In a bowl, make frothy batter by combining beaten egg, biscuit mix and beer, mixing very well.
  6. Heat the oil and butter in a metal fondue pot to 375 degrees.
  7. Spear a meatball with a fondue fork.
  8. Dip into the batter and cook in hot oil to the desired doneness, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  9. Serve with both sauces.
