]This Guinness cheese dip is for all the beer cheese lovers out there! The stout flavor is subtle; it adds a touch of malty sweetness to the sharp white cheddar cheese. This cheese dip can be addictive, consider yourself warned!
One of my character flaws is my indecisive nature. There are times where a making and committing to a decision paralyzes me. My indecision drives my husband nuts, but I think it annoys me even more. I want to make a decision, I do, but I am so fearful of making the wrong decision, and that’s just an exhausting way to live.
Nothing feeds my indecisive tendencies quite like a going out to eat. Where things get bad are at restaurants like the Cheesecake Factory where I have a 20-page menu to scour. The waiter will have to come a dozen times before I’m close to ready and I always ask to be the last to order. At that point, I go with the last item I looked at because I’m so tired of it all. And nine times out of ten I hate what I ordered. I should either just order cocktails or guacamole; you can’t ever go wrong with either of those.
I need to only frequent restaurants with small menus, none of this 20-page business. I need menus that have just a few burgers, maybe a side salad or two and perhaps a few starters. If one of those starters happened to be beer cheese, then I’d never have any trouble deciding what to order. Beer cheese is the best kind of cheese, two of my favorite things all in one bowl.
I make beer cheese for almost every occasion, and I always change it up. Sometimes I make jalapeno popper beer cheese, and sometimes I make Sriracha beer cheese, but today I made Guinness beer cheese! Don’t be alarmed, just because Guinness is a stout does not mean that it can’t blend well in a beer cheese recipe. The deep malt flavor in the stout beer has a hint of sweetness to it that neutralizes the sharp, tangy Cabot white cheddar cheese. The mixture is creamy and smooth with a well-rounded flavor that pleases the pallet and the belly!
