This is a great party fondue… makes for a great appetizer… serve this with sliced chunks of bratwurst….mini hot dogs… cocktail sausages… chunks of soft pretzels…apples… and of course bread cubes (rye, pumpernickel and sourdough all work well)…
A suggestion for a good German lager beer for this would be Grolsch.... you should be able to find it in a supermarket.
This will be a hit at your party.
