  • 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
  • Kosher salt

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Combine hot water and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Stir until baking soda has dissolved.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown and the cheese dip is melted and bubbling.

Step 5

Top with chives and serve.

Start the Oktoberfest party with one skillet, one stein…and three cheeses. Yum.
