This past Christmas, specifically asked for a fondue pot, just because I was planning to surprise the hubby with fondue supper! It was hard to keep that from him, but I managed:)
|Cuisinart Fondue Set|
I wanted to share with you all, the "Melting Pot" recipes that I used on Tuesday night. The recipes that I tried definitely were identical to the Melting Pot's...mm mmm!
We started off the night with an assortment of appetizers with cheddar cheese fondue!
|Cheese fondue after all melted and tasty:)|
6 ozs of Medium Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 ozs of Emmenthaler Swiss Cheese
4 ozs of Coors Light
2 tablespoons flour
2 tsp. of dry mustard
2 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. of freshly chopped garlic
First you must turn on Fondue Pot to medium. Put the beer, garlic, mustard powder, and Worcestershire sauce and mix together. Cube the cheese and toss with the flour. The flour is to thicken the cheese sauce. Once the beer is warm you can add in 1/3 of the cheese and let it melt then and repeat until the cheese is gone. Make sure you are whisking the cheese as you are adding it in.
Then you can serve it with broccoli, cauliflower, apples, french or Italian bread(I'm sure just about any type of bread would be tasty). Overall, this cheese dip is delish and tastes just like you would find at the Melting Pot! Advice: If you plan on surprising your husband make sure you leave plenty of time for you to prepare the food! Granted when I put my meal together I did 4 courses and it took me about one hour and half. So, just make sure you will have enough time:) Next time, I'm going to portion all of the ingredients out the night before because then we can sit down right away and enjoy our dinner:)
This will make for quite a romantic dinner! Enjoy and have fun:):)
Have any of you tried to make fondue for supper? If so, how did you like it?
