How can you go wrong with bread and hot melted cheese? This is the actual recipe used at The Melting Pot. It's not exactly a secret since they make it at the table, but our waitress even told me the exact amounts and I wrote them down!

This was good. It did taste like the one they serve at the Melting Pot, but ours was a little too thin. We followed the recipe exactly and it still came out a little soupy. Next time we may use less beer. Still a good recipe. Thanks for posting!

We really enjoyed this! Made as directed, using Tillamook sharp cheddar and Jarlsberg swiss. It's important not to use pre-shredded cheese. Used a Bud Light and didn't find the beer flavor at all overpowering. In fact my 7 year-old son tasted and loved it. Served with bread cubes, multigrain and sourdough, rye pretzels, mushrooms cut in half, and baby carrots cut in half. Thanks for the sharing!

I'm fairly new to fondues. I thought this was teriffic! It was definitely a bit strong though, next time I will probably look for an alternate way to cook it. Perhaps less beer or using milk instead... like a couple of other reviewers mentioned. Great recipe!
