Cheese Fondue
This fondue was a real hit with my family members when I served it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving dinner. I tossed the cheese with the flour (as was suggested in some of the comments) and used a few drops of lemon juice to keep the mixture smooth. I even added a little garlic and red pepper to give it a bit more flavor, but the recipe is wonderful enough by itself. It goes especially well with fresh French bread, though I also liked it with rye and with sourdough. I had less trouble with a alcohol-fueled fondue pot than with an electric one, as it seemed much easier to regulate the temperature. Thanks for making my first fondue a success!

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf
This is by far the best meatloaf recipe I have ever tried. It's so moist and delicious with all that cheese. I do like a little more spice, however, so I added some A-1 steak sauce, garlic powder, and dried minced onions to the meat mixture and let it sit for an hour before I made the loaf. The result was heavenly. A word of caution: make sure you have a drip pan underneath or you'll have a huge mess because some of the cheese will ooze out of the pan. Temporarily turning off your smoke alarm and using a meat thermometer is also recommended.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II
This is pretty yummy and very, very easy to make. You can reduce the number of chicken breasts (I only used four) without any problems. I do suggest spicing up the recipe as it is a little bland. I added more Swiss cheese and some leftover chopped onions that I needed to get rid of and it tasted great. I will probably add even more onions next time. If you're having a busy night and don't have time for something elaborate, this is a great recipe.
