Mini Date Night!

Last night John and I had a mini date night! We cooked steaks (John's favorite part), and had cheese fondue as an appetizer (my favorite part!). These cheese fondue recipe was way too yummy not to share!

I love going to the Melting Pot, and after several Google recipe searches, I think I found one similar to their cheddar cheese fondue.

It was a wonderful evening, and it always seems like the week moves faster when something special breaks it up! John has been working so hard lately that it was nice to spend time together, even if it was only dinner.

To share this delish appetizer, I'm linking up with Elise and Kati for All Things Thursday!

What you need:
- 1lb cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 1/2 cup light beer
- 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
- 1 tablespoon dry mustard powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

How to:

1. Add all ingredients, except cheese, to your fondue pot over medium heat.
2. While your mixture is heating, coat your cheese in flour (I used about a 1/4 cup).
3. Slowly add your cheese to the fondue pot, stirring until smooth.

We ate our fondue with broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, apples, and bread.

Don't have a fondue pot? No fear! You can melt the cheese using a crock pot or double boiler.


  1. I love fondue!!! We went to a friend's house a few weeks back and they treated us to some great homemade fondue...amazing!! I'm a cheese fanatic so I'll have to share my recipe with my friend!!

  2. Oh so much fun! I've been wanting to make fondue for awhile but have been so worried to make it at home. Glad to hear your's was a success! Perhaps we will try some this weekend!

  3. I'm going to need to try this at some point. Right now, D is doing the Daniel Fast, so I'll have to wait because of the cheese. There's no way I should be eating that all by myself! lol. It looks yummy, though!

  4. Yum!!! How fun!! Can you believe I've never had fondue? But what a fun date night!

  5. Thanks for sharing this Lisa! We love Melting Pot too, but I can't wait to try this at home. Yum!

  6. This looks so yummy!!! My husband loooves cheese (but really, who doesn't?) so I bet he would go crazy for this!

  7. Don't you just love date nights in? I'm so glad y'all were able to have a nice break together in the middle of the week and I'm adding your recipe to my list of things to try when I get off the road :-)

  8. YUM!! I freaking love cheese. Can you believe I've never been to a Melting Pot restaurant!?? I must, soon!!

  9. YUM! That cheese fondue looks amazing! Right up my alley...not I need a fondue pot stat!

  10. Girl, you and these delicious recipes are killing me right now! Haha! Looks so yummy! And gotta love date nights! :)
