Party Tips from Lora – Baratta’s Director of Catering

The fall season is upon us and with it comes football. That brings to mind on thing: Tailgating. Try a unique and inexpensive appetizer call Cheeseburger Beer Dip!


4 Tbsp Cornstarch

3 lbs Sharp Shredded Cheddar Cheese

3 C. Beer

3 Tbsp Melted Unsalted Butter

1/2 lb Cooked Ground Beef

2 C. Chopped Tomatoes


Combine beer, butter and cornstarch and bring to a boil on low heat. Add in half of the cheese and stir until melted then add the other half of the cheese. Stir on low heat until the cheese has melted and the mixture becomes creamy. Then add in the beef and tomatoes. Transfer the cheese dip into a fondue or covered pot and let the party begin! Don’t forget your tortilla and pita chips too!
