Because crab is the star of this fondue, be sure to buy the best crabmeat possible - it makes a world of difference!
Crab Cake Fondue
INGREDIENTS
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 small (or 1/2 medium) onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup dry white wine, room temperature
1 1/4 cups half-and-half
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into 6 pieces
1/2 pound Cheddar, finely shredded
1/2 pound crabmeat (use the highest quality that you can purchase)
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Instructions

1. Put the oil in the fondue pot and set to Setting 4 1/2. Once oil is hot, add the chopped vegetables and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Cook until softened, about 1 1/2; to 2 minutes. Add the wine, cooking until it is almost completely evaporated, and then stir in the half-and-half.


2. Once the half-and-half is warmed through, stir in all of the cream cheese and then the Cheddar, about ½ cup at a time. Once the cheese has fully melted, stir in the crabmeat, remaining salt, Old Bay, Worcestershire and mustard. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.


3. Reduce the temperature to Setting 3 for serving. This fondue pairs well with crusty bread cubes and steamed or blanched green beans and broccoli.
