Found this recipe on the Fondue Factory. I got the idea from Canarygirl to do a fondue dinner for my husband. I decided to go all out and do an appetizer (this one), a main course with oil, and of course a chocolate dessert one. This cheese recipe was awesome!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cheeses with the cornstarch and dry mustard.
  2. Toss to coat.
  3. Add the worcestershire sauce and mix well.
  4. In a saucepan or fondue pot (I have an electric fondue pot), heat the beer until warm over medium heat.
  5. Over medium low heat, add the cheese mixture slowly, stirring constantly until the cheese has melted.
  6. If you used a saucepan to melt the cheese, transfer the cheese to a fondue pot and keep warm over a fondue burner, etc.
  7. If using an electric fondue pot to melt your cheese, turn it to warm.
  8. Serve with bread, pretzels or bread sticks.

We really liked this. I used sharp cheddar instead of American. This recipe does not claim to be an authentic Swiss style fondue and it is not, but it is a great fondue that I will make again. We use a non alcoholic beer instead of regular beer. It was a little stringy but not bad at all. I would add a little lemon juice to combat the stringiness if it was a bother but it wasn't, just made the fondue more fun.

American cheese and beer are very poor substitutes for Emmentaler and white wine. You know, there's a reason to use white wine: it is acidic, it helps melting the cheese while preventing it from balling.
