Swiss Beer Fondue With Fusilli Pasta And Sausage Dippers

Attention, attention! This is the snack of the century! Succulent crunchy sausages, a rich cheese fondue infused with beer, and swirly pasta – what more could you possibly ask for?! The whole thing comes in a springform pan too, so it's perfect for dipping and sharing. Admittedly, it is a little bit out there and some might even call it crazy, but there's no denying that it's a true delight for the senses. This culinary revelation is THE appetizer to serve at your next party!

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

You'll Need:

  • 10 sausage links
  • 12 oz fusilli pasta
  • 24 oz Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup beer
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • pepper to taste
  • crispy fried onions & sliced scallions to garnish

Here's How:

1. Place the sausage links next to each other and push a wooden skewer all the way through the sausage links at the top. Repeat on the bottom with a second wooden skewer.

2. Place the skewered sausages in a large roasting pan over a griddle and cook them on both sides.

3. Take the cooked sausages out of the pan and cut the section in half horizontally.

4. Place the 2 sausage skewers crosswise in a 9-inch springform pan.

5. Boil the fusilli pasta in lightly salted water and spoon the cooked pasta into 2 of the 4 empty compartments in the springform pan.

6. Grate the Swiss cheese into a pot over medium heat and add the beer, milk, and corn starch. Season with pepper, stir until combined, and bring to a boil.

7. Pour the cheese fondue into the other 2 compartments in the springform pan. Remove the wooden skewers from the sausages and garnish the dish with crispy fried onions and sliced scallions.

If this isn't enough proof that you should always have a springform pan handy even if you're not into baking, we don't know what is. Enjoy this cheesy sausage snack!
