CHEESE FONDUE TASTY BUT EASY?!
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons ground dry mustard
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix together milk, Worcestershire sauce, ground dry mustard, garlic and flour. Heat until almost boiling. Gradually stir in Cheddar cheese. Continue heating until all the cheese has melted. Keep the mixture warm and melted in a fondue dish.
any cheese can be used. but keep it shredded cheese
a good thing to dip would be
broccoli, bread, pears, pepperoni, pita bread, mushrooms, baby potatoes, peppers, cherry or grape tomatoes or use your imagination
I know. They're telling you Gruyere, Appenzeller. Emmenthal etc etc( all these are are different Swiss cheeses.
In Europe they sometimes make fondue just to use up all their cheese ends and as long as it's a meltable cheese they will use it.
You can use things like Cheddar,Swiss cheese( the sandwich stuff) Muenster even Brie, Camembert( almost anything).
You can't use things like Mozzarella. Parmigiano or Pecorino Romano because they won't melt ( the Mozz will only stretch and make a mess).
White dry wine( a little) and Kirsch( cherry liquor). No Kirsch, no problem, sub anything cherry. A few drops of cherry soda or juice is fine.
Cheese business( forever).
I made this last night...it was very rich and yummy.
Take equal parts butter and flour; melt butter in a sauce pan (I have a big family, so I made more than some might want, but just use your judgment here as per quantity) then stir in flour till it is thick, like a paste (called a roux). Add cold milk, whisking constantly over low heat. Let this cooked till thickened and bubbly (10-15 min, depending...) Season to taste with salt, pepper, maybe hot sauce, whatever. Then add in your cheese (I used shredded blend, and also a partial block of cheddar broken into pieces.) Keep stirring over low heat until blended well. This makes a rich, very,very smooth sauce that can be used for fondue. It was very good and quite inexpensive.
