I typically use this cheese sauce to make macaroni and cheese and bake with a breadcrumb topping but one day I wanted to do something a bit different for a party so decided to do a "deconstructed cheese steak" fondue. It was a hit and was especially tasty.
Note: Recipe can be cut in half. Also, assembly can be done prior to guests coming over. I let guests do their own as I have some guests who do not like onions or peppers. - tammy_morse —tammy_morse
Test Kitchen Notes
What a fun and appealing concept! Who doesn't love a grilled cheese steak sandwich? This recipe attempts to replicate those flavors with the sophistication of fondue and Gruyere. The recipe was a lot of fun to make—grilling baguette croutons, steaks, peppers and onions. The fondue itself had a wonderful, creamy, gooey, consistency. Next time, I might try a stronger aged cheddar (which also would also provide the traditional "Cheese Whiz" color), or add a little mustard powder, Worcestershire or wine to give it a little more depth and tang. All in all this is a great dish that kids and grownups alike will enjoy. —Burnt Offerings
