Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 pkg* (16-oz) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
1 pkg (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup heavy cream
1 jar (7-oz) diced pimiento, drained well
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 tsp ground red pepper

Combine the Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and heavy cream in a 3 to 4 -quart slow cooker or crockpot.  Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low setting for 1 hour.  Remove lid and stir the mixture to combine.  Replace the lid and continue cooking for 30 more minutes. 

Add the pimiento, onions and red pepper to the cheese mixture stirring to blend.  Replace the lid and and continue cooking for another 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot through. 

Serve the fondue with fresh vegetables, tortilla chips, or lightly toasted French or Italian bread cubes.

Yield: 4 cups of fondue
