Fondue

Sunday we had fondue for dinner durring our game night. It was HIT! You don't need fancy gadgets to eat fondue, just a crock pot, a regular pot over the stove, or a bowl in the microwave.
We used these recipes.

Cheese Fondue
1 lb cheese, whatever you have on hand, I used Sharp cheddar, Mozzarella, & Colby jack.
2 tbs Flour
1 1/2 c Apple cider or juice. (I know this one sounds weird, but it was yummy)

Heat until cheese is melted.

Chocolate Fondue
1 c. Chocolate
1 c. Heavy wipping cream (or yogurt if you happen to be out of cream)

Heat until chocolate is melted.

Pizza Fondue
4 ounces bulk sausage
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
30 ounces spaghetti sauce
1 cup sliced (or finely chopped) fresh mushrooms
2/3 cup pepperoni
1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1/4 cup chopped red peppers

In a large pot, brown sausage, onion and garlic. Drain grease. Add spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, peppers, pepperoni or Canadian-style bacon, and basil. Cover and cook on low heat for 3 hours to develop the flavors.

Serve these with bread sticks, a loaf sourdough, steamed broccoli, chicken, brownie balls, mushrooms, and fruit chunks.

We found that 3 fondues was way too much for 4 adults and 2 kids. But these amounts would probably be enough for 6-8 people.

Maybe we'll start a new tradition? Thanksgiving fondue?

I don't know why it never occurred to me to use a crock pot. I might have to try the cheese recipe.
