Author Barry C. Parsons


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika or regular paprika
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • 8 oz smoked cheddar grated
  • 1/2 tsp dry thyme
  • 1 clove finely minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine


  1. Mix together the flour, paprika, salt and pepper.
  2. Toss this mixture with the grated cheese to evenly coat the strands of cheese.
  3. Add the white wine, garlic and thyme to the meal mug. Microwave for 30-60 seconds or until the wine is close to boiling.
  4. Add the these mixture and stir gently.
  5. Microwave at 15-30 second intervals on medium high power. stirring after each interval. It is best to do this slowly to keep the cheese from hardening around the edges if microwaved for too long.
  6. Repeat until the fondue is piping hot and quite smooth.
  7. Serve with fresh or toasted pieces of baguette or other crusty artisan bread.
