Classic Swiss Fondue

This was the first meal my husband ever made me. We had been dating about two months and he said he had this very special date planned for me. He took me to his house (his parents' house) and suprised me with this INCREDIBLE fondue. He had everything decorated really glamorously (probably with the help of his mom...Thanks Erin!) and we felt super posh as we ate it. Then he surprised me by whipping out the movie "Twilight" and declared, "My love for you is greater than my hate for this movie, so I will watch it with you!" It was quite the night.

I made this for a bachelorette party recently, too, and it was a major hit. So fun to eat with a group of friends, just socializing and snacking. You'll just love it.

{What you need}
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
pepper to taste
1 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

{Dipper ideas}
cubed french bread
cubed brawtworst
pretzle sticks
steamed/fresh veggies

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour, dry mustard, and pepper. Cook for 1 minute and remove from the heat. Stir in the milk gradually. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in the cheese until melted Spoon into fondue pot and serve with your choice of dippers.

I love that fondues have made such a come-back. Loved them in the 70's and here they are again.

What a lovely blog, I popped in and see the fondue, one of my favorite dishes, being Swiss. I got all homesick. When you do the Fondue next time try to find some Swiss Cheese like Gruyere and Vacherin, they make an absolutely amazing fondue. But if you don't mind I will pop in from time to time, you got lovely recipes
