This is a classic with a difference - a clove or two of finely chopped garlic would add to the flavour - if you line this! I often add a teaspoon of dry mustard to the flour as our cheese, at the moment, is very bland - this is a choice you can make - sometimes a bit of salt is also needed depending on your taste and the flavour of the cheese. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 cups milk 2 finely chopped red and yellow peppers mixed 1/2 envelope dry onion soup mix 1 pound cheese - cheddar or good tasting Gouda Put flour into fondue pot. Gradually add milk, cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Add peppers and soup mix. Gradually add cheese, stir until melted. Reduce heat to maintain slight bubbles during serving. Dip cubes of French bread, broccoli, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, ham cubes. You can replace the milk with dry white wine - add a very small tot of vodka if you do so that the cheese does not go stringy.
