Beer and cheese fondue ...

Tom and I decided to make Beer-Cheese Fondue for dinner Sunday, instead of the Wine-Cheese Fondue we usually make. We did a bit of experimenting, and came up with a recipe that worked for us ...
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. beer (we used what we had on hand ... Harp)
2 c. (8 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. Worcestershire
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/8 tsp. black pepper
Dash cayenne pepper (optional)
Several shakes Tabasco sauce (optional
Add beer to fondue pot, heat slowly. Add minced garlic. Coat cheese with flour and add to beer. Stir in Worcestershire, dry mustard, black & red pepper and Tabasco sauce. Stir constantly until cheese is melted. Dip cubed French bread and sausage chunks in fondue. I added some dried parsley flakes to give the fondue a little color. Fresh parsley would also work ... This made enough for the two of us!!!
