Blow them away with this decadent cheesy crab fondue appetizer served with hunks of French bread. It’s a deceptively simple dip—ready in just 30 minutes.
cups shredded Gruyère or Swiss cheese (8 oz)
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
cup frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions (from 1-lb bag)
cup dry white wine or milk
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
cans (6 oz each) crabmeat, drained and cartilage removed
loaf (14 to 16 oz) French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
In 2-quart saucepan or chafing dish, heat all ingredients except crabmeat and bread over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted. Stir in crabmeat. Pour into fondue pot or chafing dish to keep warm; dip will hold for 2 hours.
Spear bread cubes with fondue forks; dip into fondue. (If fondue becomes too thick, stir in a small amount of dry white wine or milk.)
This sensational seafood dip is also great served with raw zucchini sticks, red bell pepper strips or blanched pea pods.
