Quick and Easy Preparation

The wonderful thing about this Beer Cheese Dip is that it just takes minutes to make. In under 15 minutes, you’re serving up a hot, delicious dip that looks like it took some major expertise, so they never need to know that it really only took about 10 minutes…LOL!

Choosing the Right Ingredients

You can choose to use whatever kind of cheese you like. I used a combo of Sharp Cheddar and White Cheddar. Really, any good melting cheese would be fine like Gouda, Swiss, or Fontina.

Whatever you choose, I would do a combo with the Sharp Cheddar as your base. Also, definitely shred your own cheese. Pre-shredded cheese does not melt well.

You can shred it on a cheese grater or in your food processor. It seriously took me only three minutes to shred the cheese on my grater.

You could also shred the onions or just mince them very fine. You don’t want chunks of onion; you’re really just looking to get the fresh onion undertone.

Cooking Instructions

The rest is all made on the stove in a medium-size pan.

You start by melting the butter then add all your other ingredients in order one by one, so within about 6 minutes, you’re done!

Remove from the heat and put it right into a serving dish, and it will thicken up as it sits.

Serve this dip nice and hot, so remember to start your oven for your hot pretzels before you make the dip.
