Kochkäse, Schmelzkäse or Beer Cheese

Jump to recipe

This is spreadable cheese can be used as a party dip or spread, and when I bring it it’s always a big hit. I remember Schmelz or Kochkäse from my childhood. I tried different variations, my favorite is Beer Cheese with Brie

1. Beer cheese: Prepare the basic recipe without the parmesan. Turn off stove on low, add a cubed half brie, 1 tsp granulated garlic, 1 tbsp. Mustard, juice of a half Lemon and 1/2 cup beer to your liking at the end. Season with salt and pepper

2. With Riesling: Use basic recipe, then add Riesling or Champagne and juice of 1/2 lemon (no garlic or caraway seeds)
