  • 1 tablespoon
    no-trans-fat margarine, (with 8 grams of fat per tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoons
    fat-free or light sour cream
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons
    quick-mixing flour
  • 3/4 cup
    fat-free half-and-half
  • 3/4 cup
    low-fat milk
  • 1 pinch
    ground nutmeg, or cayenne red pepper
  • 3/4 cup
    shredded light cheese (or reduced-fat Swiss)
  • 1/2 cup
    shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup
    shredded Parmesan
    salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In medium saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat; blend in the sour cream and flour to make a paste. Whisk in the milk and half-and-half and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. 
  2. Reduce heat to simmer, stir in salt, pepper, and cayenne, and stir frequently until the sauce thickens (about 5 minutes). 
  3. Whisk in an additional tablespoon of  flour, if needed, for desired thickness.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in shredded cheeses and stir well. Pour cheese into fondue pot or slow cooker set on high. 
  5. Serve with cubes of sourdough or French bread, or lightly cooked vegetables (broccoli or cauliflower florets work well).
