Cheddar Fondue

We had fondue with the kids for the first time on New Years Eve.  I found a recipe that was more cheddar based, rather than the traditional swiss, so the kids might like it better.

12 oz sharp cheddar
4 oz swiss
1 Tbl flour
8 oz light beer (or chicken broth)
1 Tbl  + 1 tsp garlic powder
1 1 Tbl  + 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbl dry mustard

Shred cheeses and toss with the flour.

With the fondue pot on medium heat, pour in the beer (or broth.)  Since the kids were joining us I let it boil quite a while to burn off the alcohol content.  Add garlic, mustard powder and Worcestershire.

Add about 1/3 of the cheese and whisk very well.  Once it has melted add another third and wish, and then add the remaining and whisk again.

We served it with sourdough and rye bread, apples, celery and boiled red potatoes.
