The season of game days and tailgating are here, my friends! Now, I am not really a football fan as you all know by now. However, I am a huge fan of the food that goes along with it. I LOVE game days spreads with lots of dips, burgers, hot dogs, you name it. So with that in mind, I made this wonderful and easy beer cheese dip for Marc and I to snack on. It came together really quickly and had so much flavor!
I served the easy beer cheese dip with soft pretzel bites for a fun snack with Marc and it was pure heaven! He absolutely loves food like this so he was a happy camper too. It really works for so many occasions, and I hope you all enjoy it! xo
Whether it's game day, a party or just plain old snacking, this easy beer cheese dip is so hot, satisfying and flavorful for the table. Perfect for sharing!
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1 cup beer
- 8 ounces smoked gouda cheese freshly grated
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium high heat and let it melt. Add in the flour, garlic powder, paprika, and cumin and whisk it into the flour until it thickens into a golden roux for about 2-3 minutes. Keep whisking while you slowly pour in the beer and let the beer cook off and thicken for another couple of minutes. Then whisk in the cheese until it is completely melted in, shiny and smooth. Take the pan off the heat and serve immediately with crusty bread, soft pretzels, even apple slices!
