Appetizer Beer & Cheese Fondue
(Originally found on the Betty Crocker Website)
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Place bread pieces in an ungreased jelly roll pan or cookie sheet (15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1"). Bake approximately 10 minutes, stirring twice until lightly toasted. Transfer to serving bowl or basket.
- Meanwhile, melt cheese in 2-qt saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in broccoli, beer, pimentos and mustard. Cook, stirring constantly until hot. Pour into ceramic fondue pot over low heat, or in 1/2 quart slow-cooker at Low heat setting.
- To serve, skewer toasted bread pieces with fondue forks or wooden skewers and dip into cheese mixture. Cheese mixture will keep in slow cooker on "Low" for about 2 hours.
