This creamy, cheesy mixture keeps well in a fondue pot and is likely to be the star of the buffet. It's excellent with pieces of hearty bread, pretzels and fresh veggies. —Sonya Labbe, Los Angeles, California

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups fresh cauliflowerets
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Gruyere or additional Swiss cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups Irish or nonalcoholic beer
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 French bread baguette (10-1/2 ounces), cubed

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add broccoli and cauliflower; cover and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and immediately place vegetables in ice water. Drain and pat dry; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the cheeses and flour. In a large saucepan, heat beer and lemon juice over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan.
Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-eight motion, until cheese is almost completely melted.
