Fondue who, fondue you! What in the heck does fondue mean? Well let us tell you, it is a French Italian dish served in a communal pot and eaten by sticking a long fork with bread into some melted cheese. What that means is that all of your guests are going to be eating out of the same pot. So make sure you have plenty of long forks, skewers or sticks. No double dipping allowed at our house!
This is what you are going to need-
5 ounces Swiss cheese, grated
5 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
1 ½ tablespoons all purpose flour
¾ cup sherry (non alcoholic wine if you have family members in recovery, we sure do)
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ cup of half and half
¼ teaspoon of salt
French bread, cut into cubes
This is what you are going to do with the stuff we said you needed-
Get you a large bowl out, put the grated cheese and flour in it, toss the two together and set to the side. You know that fondue pot you got when you got married years ago? Well, get it out of the attic and wash it up. We are going to have us a fondue party. Put the sherry in the fondue pot, don’t be sipping on it, just put it in the pot. Next add the garlic and set the temperature to simmer. Add half and half and cheese mixture, whisking to prevent the mixture from lumping up on you. Bring to a gentle simmer and keep warm over low, stirring as needed. If cheese becomes too thick, add you some more wine. Lap it up with some bread.
