Let me tell you a little bit about these little burger sliders with a creamy cheese on top. They are delicious! Serve them on any kind of bun or roll, although the pretzel bun makes them totally irresistible, too. We enjoyed these a couple weeks back, with an Irish Pub Salad on the side!

Friends, for a nice dose of Vitamin D, we’ve been in California for a few weeks. Yes, we’re both still working (we can both work from the road), and we’re planning to take our Sprinter van out and camp at Joshua Tree.

What type of beer is best for Beer Cheese?

Dark beers like stouts, and malts, give a rich, deep flavor.

Light beers, like ales and IPAs, will give a lighter kind of flavor.

You can also use non-alcoholic beers in this recipe.

Does Beer Cheese have to be refrigerated?

Yes, if you make it ahead of time. How to store: Let the Beer Cheese cool down to room temperature before you refrigerate. As long as you keep the Beer Cheese tightly sealed in an airtight container, it will last for about five days.

How do you keep cheese sauce creamy?

If you are pulling the sauce from the fridge, I usually add two tablespoons of milk into a pan, heat it up, and whisk in the cheese until it’s completely melted.

How to make the Beer Cheese Sauce

  1. In a medium pot, cook the garlic in olive oil on low heat, then add the milk and beer. Bring liquids to a simmer.
  2. Add the cream cheese to the pot and soften over low heat—when the cream cheese begins to melt, add in cheddar, mozzarella, Dubliner, Dijon mustard, and cayenne, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Salt to taste.
  3. Cook until the sauce is thickened.

TIP: If the Beer Cheese) is too thin, you can thicken it with an extra tablespoon of flour or cornstarch. Mix the flour or cornstarch in a separate bowl with 1/4 cup of the thin Beer Cheese Sauce. Slowly add the new thick sauce back into the Beer Cheese recipe.

California has been a nice break from the cold, and speaking of “yellow sunshine,” I just love the “horseradish yellow” west elm chairs in the cute place we are staying. You do, too? I was surprised at how comfy these chairs are, and the price is perfect – around $299 per chair.
