While your liquids are heating, you can grate your cheese. Here's the Irish cheddar...
Mixed with the domestic cheddar and some flour. Stir this mixture together so that everything is combined.
Now toss the floured cheese into the beer/juice mixture.
And whisk until everything is combined. After a few minutes, your cheese will melt into gooey tasty deliciousness.
By now, your veggies are steamed and ready!
Chop up a green apple or two...
And make yourself a little bowl o' cheese sauce!
Now combine the steamed vegetables with your apples. Happy dipping! Here's to a tasty St. Patty's meal!
