3 cheese fondue


Having a great appreciation for fondue I decided to go out on a limb and make some of my own at home rather than paying the big bucks at a local restaurants. Unfortunately for me when I got to the store to pick up some cheese I figured out why it cost so much in the restaurants, but even with that said it's still a lot cheaper than hitting a local fondue place. So here is my fondue, I made it with Swiss, Le Gruyere and mozzarella cheeses, also I added some red bell pepper to get a bit more flavor and a little crunch to the fondue. I like to enjoy my fondue with home bread, radish and some home smoked sausage.


Ingredients.

1/2 lb Swiss.
1/2 lb Le Gruyere
1/2 lb Mozzarella.
3 cloves of Garlic.
1 cup dry white wine.
1 1/2 tab spoons corn starch.
1/2 bell pepper cubed.
salt and pepper to taste.


Start by cutting your garlic cloves in half and using a fork rub the pot with them, take your wine and bring it to a boil in the pot. While the wine is heating combine all your ingredients except pepper in a large bowl and mix it well so all your shredded cheese will be covered with cornstarch. I would also hold the salt and pepper till the end that way you can taste the fondue and bring it to your liking.

When your wine came to boil turn it down to medium/low heat and add a hand full of cheese to it, mixing it constantly until the cheese melts, after the first handful of cheese melts add another hand full and so on until all your cheese is melted. Don't forget to adjust your temperature as you add the cheese, because the cheese is cold it will cool down the liquid thus stooping the melting process. Your cheese should become one solid, now add your bell pepper and don't forget to salt and pepper to your liking, bring it to a boil let it boil for few minutes.

Enjoy with radish and some sausage.
