Cast-Iron Cooking Recipes & Tips for Getting the Most out of Your Cast-Iron CookwareCheesy Fondue is perfect for cheese lovers. Melted cheese is great in any form: pizza, grilled cheese, quesadillas you name it. This fondue simply enables you to take that love to a new level. If you’re like me, this is the recipe for you. This also works great over a low campfire, but use a Dutch oven and double the ingredients.

  • Yield: 6 Servings


  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 cups grated cheese, (try a mix of Swiss, cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Havarti)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Colman’s mustard powder
  • 2 cups pale ale
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
  • Bread cubes and assorted vegetables, for serving
How to Make It
  1. Rub the bottom of a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with the garlic clove and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, toss the grated cheese with the cornstarch and mustard powder to coat.
  3. Heat the garlic-rubbed skillet over low heat, add the beer, and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the cheese in four parts, letting the cheese melt completely before adding more.
  4. Serve while still warm and bubbling, garnished with parsley and with a plate of bread and assorted vegetables on the side.
