20--- Cheese Fondue

Cheese? Yes please!  This is a fun and social dinner idea, or a great appetizer for your next party!  The crock pot keeps it nice and warm throughout your dining experience.

No football-watching crowd would complain about this in the middle of the coffee table on Super Bowl Sunday, would they?

Three Cheese Fondue
Serves 6-8 (Makes ~ 4 cups)

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 package instant onion soup mix
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 1/2 cups milk
2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Jarlesberg cheese

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour, salt, onion soup mix, mustard, and pepper. Stir until a paste is formed. Whisk in Worcestershire sauce, then slowly add milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly.

Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a low boil, stirring frequently. Continue to heat until thickened, 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat and fold in shredded cheeses, stirring constantly until melted.

Transfer mixture to a crock pot and keep warm on low to serve.

Provide each diner with multiple bamboo skewers for dipping, along with plates of sausages, sourdough bread cubes, apples, cubed roasted potatoes, and roasted vegetables.
