Jailhouse Fondue

March 6, 2009


My stepdad makes chili on the cheap that he calls Jailhouse Chili. I wanted to make fondue last weekend but didn’t want to spend what was looking to be $60 on ingredients. I revised my plan and made what I now like to call Jailhouse Fondue, using much more affordable types of cheese and alcohol. Ma Barker, would you be a dear and pass the fondue fork? Thanks, dollface.

Jailhouse Fondue
Serves 5 as an appetizer/snack
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour 1 tsp.
Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. yellow mustard
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 bottles of 12 oz. beer
2.5 cups cheddar cheese
2 baguettes, cubed
Sliced apples

In a saucepan, melt butter, blend in flour, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Open beers. Drink one and pour in the other. Stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat, add cheese, stir until melted. Transfer to fondue pot and place over low heat. Stab bread cubes and sliced apples with the fondue forks and dive in. Resist urge to lick the skewer. That’s gross. Just because you are cheap doesn’t mean you have to be classless.
