This is the perfect game-day marriage. We put beer and cheese together to create a delicious sauce to smother everyone's favorite snack -- mozzarella sticks.



  1. Cook the mozzarella sticks according to the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, mustard powder, smoked paprika and 1/2 teaspoons salt; cook, whisking, until smooth, about 1 minute. Whisk in the beer, half-and-half and hot sauce until smooth; bring to a simmer and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the Cheddar until melted. 
  3. Put the mozzarella sticks on a platter and drizzle with the sauce. Sprinkle with the everything bagel seasoning and chives.
