30 -35 minutes
1/2 cup Oktoberfest lager
2 cups hot water
1/4 cup baking soda
1 can (16.3 oz.) refrigerated biscuits
8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chives, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Combine hot water and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Stir until baking soda has dissolved.
Remove biscuits from container. Slice each one in half and roll into a ball. Dip into baking soda and water mixture. Place dough balls around the edge of a 10- or 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Slice an “X” across the top of each dough ball. Sprinkle dough balls with kosher salt.
In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, Oktoberfest, cheddar cheese, mozzarella, garlic powder, and salt. Transfer cheese mixture to the center of the cast-iron skillet.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown and the cheese dip is melted and bubbling.
Top with chives and serve.
Start the Oktoberfest party with one skillet, one stein…and three cheeses. Yum.
