"Fancy Cheese Fondue"

Thursday, October 8, 2009 2 comments
I haven't made too many meals so far. At least, not anything requiring a recipe. But, Shawn & I (ok, mostly I) have decided that Fridays or Saturdays are going to be "dip & movie nights." It's something easy, but if you know Shawn - that's what he likes the most. Our first week home, I decided to try fondue since I love The Melting Pot. Shawn's not a huge fan since everything takes "too long." He does like the cheese fondue, though, so I thought I would try to make something similar that would hopefully taste as good (and be a good bit cheaper).

I found a recipe for Fancy Cheese Fondue on another woman's blog (she blogged a new Crock-Pot recipe every day for a year - can you believe that?!?). It seemed easy enough and (obviously) didn't need an actual fondue pot - major plus, since we don't have one.
This recipe is made for a small fondue pot ("The Little Dipper"), but we quadrupled it and made it the big Crock-Pot since we were eating it as our meal.
Here ya go:
1/4 cup each of three "fancy" cheeses (we used Swiss & Gruyere, Sharp White Cheddar, and Mozzarella & Provolone)
1/4 cup white wine (I just bought the cheapest white wine they had at the liquor store)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
* Shred the hard cheese and put them in the Crock Pot. Add the cheese. Pour in the white wine and sprinkle the nutmeg on top. No need to stir - it will melt together.

* Plug in the Little Dipper. Cook for 45 minutes, then stir. Cover again and heat until cheese is melted and bubbly.
* Shawn and I ate the fondue with apples, pretzels, nachos, carrots, and French bread. Soooooooo good!
