Swiss Cheese Fondue
1 lb. Swiss cheese, grated
3 T. flour
1/2 t. dry mustard
seasoned salt, to taste
1 1/2 c. half-and-half
French bread, cut into chunks
apple, peeled and cut into chunks
(optional dippers: cooked sausage chunks, chunks of ham, cooked potato chunks, or any other vegetables your family likes, cut into bite-sized pieces)
Grate your cheese and mix it in bowl with flour, dry mustard, and seasoned salt. Set aside. In saucepan on the stove, heat half-and-half until just below boiling. (You should see it kind of start to move in the pan.) Drop a handful of cheese mixture into the liquid, stirring well. As cheese starts to melt, drop in another big handful. Keep adding and stirring until all cheese is used. Mixture should be thick and smooth.
Now the fun part: you get to eat it! Serve with cubes of French bread, chunks of apple, and any other dippers that sound good to you. Hand everyone a fork and dip away.
