Baked Crab and Gouda Cheese Pots
The secret to achieving a velvety-smooth texture for this baked fondue is to let the cheese stand at room temperature first and to add just a little cheese at a time to the simmering wine, letting it melt completely before adding more.
Marbled Rye Breadsticks:
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Trim crusts from 6 slices of marbled rye or pumpernickel bread. Cut bread into 1/2-inch-wide strips; place on a baking sheet. Combine 2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine and 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt; brush all sides of each breadstick with garlic butter. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until crisp, turning breadsticks halfway through.
