My son and I have gotten into making fondue this year, especially during late-night football games. This is one of our favs.

How to Make Crabby Cheddar Fondue


  • 1I like to lightly rub minced garlic in my fondue pot before cooking. Heat 1 cup beer with lemon juice & brown sugar.
  • 2Slowly add shredded cheddar cheese (I like sharp aged). Melt, stirring constantly. Add cornstarch when cheese is melted and stir very well.
  • 3Add crab & then salt, pepper & seafood seasoning. I love this on crostini or pretzel rolls cut up in large chunks. We also dipped sauteed large mushrooms (whole) in it. YUM!
