Cheese Fondue

This is a very basic cheese fondue recipe that I got off

My husband and I are relatively new at the whole "fondue thing" but thought we'd give cheese a shot as we did oil fondue for New Year's Eve earlier this month.

It was really very simple to make (probably done with it all in 15 minutes) and tasted great. We dipped veggies and french bread.

It's VERY basic, you could add different spices and things to make it your own. Some people on suggested adding a bit of beer to give it some more kick. We didn't do this.

Basic Cheese Fondue

2 cups milk
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons ground dry mustard
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix together milk, Worcestershire sauce, ground dry mustard, garlic and flour. Heat until almost boiling. Gradually stir in Cheddar cheese. Continue heating until all the cheese has melted. Keep the mixture warm and melted in a fondue dish.
