This Irish Cheese Fondue is a fun way to get your kids to eat their veggies. And adding it to a fun St. Patrick’s Day Dinner is a win-win!
Creating family memories is a high priority for me! The easiest way for me, is to create a fun meal for the holidays. St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays for us! Over the years we have had everything from Irish Beef Stew to simple St. Patrick’s Day Dessert. I have never gone as far as to color mashed potatoes green though…have you?
This Irish Cheese Fondue has lots of different options, I made mine kid-friendly, but you could certainly use beer or wine if you would like to. I understand that when you cook the alcohol, it generally disappears, but it doesn’t totally cook out. I found a good explanation on the Science of Cooking. I just typically avoid it if I can, unless it’s cooking wine, which adds great flavor.
Your dipping choices are virtually endless. This time we served our’s up with some healthy options like cauliflower, broccoli and red potatoes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with your choices, maybe some chunks of steak or strips of bacon will satisfy the meat-eaters in your house. Or even something simple like homemade pretzels would be a hit with the crowd.
The original recipe I found for the Irish Cheese Fondue called for Irish Cheese and Stout Beer, but I couldn’t find the cheese. If you would like to follow that recipe, visit Epicurious.
