3 tbsp. butter 3 tbsp. flour 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. garlic salt Dash of nutmeg 3 c. milk 2 (8 oz. each) pkgs. processed Swiss cheese 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 2 loaves crusty French or Italian bread, cut into cubes with a piece of crust on each cube
In a fondue pot (or pan) over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in next 5 ingredients. Add milk gradually and cook until sauce is smooth and thickened. Lower heat and add cheese by handfuls, stirring until cheese is melted after each addition. Stir in Worcestershire sauce. To eat, spear bread with a long handled fork and dunk in fondue - keep hot over flame during serving.
I have never ever indulged in any kind of Fondue. They are not popular in Scotland. A Fondue Restaurant opened for a short time in Edinburgh, it only lasted a few months and had to close, before I could coax someone to go with me.
Over the last 25 years I have bought 3 different fondue sets. Every time I have mentioned fondue - there was no response. My DH isn't in any way interested. I've mentioned steak, the eyebrows lifted, but there was an ummph, so I have decided that the latest one if not used before Christmas will be a stocking filler for someone - on the condition that they invite me to their first fondue party.
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!

Fondue is good but a lot of work! We used to have fondue parties! Now they were fun. We still have our old pot, but haven't used it in over 25 years or so. I have tried the chocolate fondue, this cheese one (my favorite!) and also the hot oil to cook meat.
