Fondue Cheese Recipe
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 C. dry white wine
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 C. Swiss cheese, shredded
2 C. Gruyere cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, simmer the garlic, wine, and lemon juice. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the cheeses, and blend well until melted. Add mustard and nutmeg. Keep warm over Sterno with a fondue pot.
Dip assorted breads, meats, and veggies in the cheese. We diced French bread, salami, and fresh mushrooms to eat with our fondue.
Frugal Tips: Gruyere isn’t exactly frugal. I found it at Sam’s Club for $12/lb., and that was the best price I could find. However, a splurge like this doubles as a Fun, Frugal Family Activity while providing a meal as well. You can do the whole thing for less than $20, which is much less than an evening out.
