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!
