Fruit and Cheese Fondue

  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 c. milk
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/3 c. crumbled blue cheese (about 2 oz)
  • Assorted fruit, for dipping

Melt butter in a large saucepan; stir in flour, salt and nutmeg to form a smooth paste. Remove from heat; gradually stir in milk.

Return to heat and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened; continue cooking and stirring 2 minutes longer.

Remove from heat; stir in cheddar and blue cheese. If necessary, return to heat to finish melting cheese, but do not boil.

Pour melted cheese mixture into fondue pot; keep warm. Serve with sliced apples and pears, orange sections, melon chunks/balls, pineapple wedges or grapes. Spear fruits with long-handled fondue forks and dip into the cheese mixture.
