Many moons ago, AKA four years ago, my dear husband got me a fondue pot for Christmas. Well, that pot has been hibernating that sweet little cylinderical box all this time. I've never seen a fondue recipe in any of my cookbooks, and it's not like we have this capability to access millions of free recipes at the tips our fingertips. Needless to say, I took out a steak to thaw for dinner, and while I was perusing a new cookbook, I stumbled across this recipe. I busted out the fondue pot. You should have seen me trying to figure out how to work the thing. I thought for sure that when I put a match into the gel fuel, I was going to singe my eyebrows or blow the house up. It did not do either of those things, but I did let out a little yelp when it ignited. I'm not sure it was a yelp of fear or a yelp or excitement. Either way, this fondue stuff is the way to go.

1/4 c mayonnaise
1 T curry powder
1 T milk
1/4 t hot pepper sauce
2 T mayonnaise
2 T dijon mustard
1/2 t hot pepper sauce
1/2 t garlic clove, minced
2 T finely chopped onion
2 T mayonnaise
1/2 T prepared horseradish sauce
1 t water
dash hot pepper sauce
canola oil (I used vegetable oil)
Combine the sauce ingredients in three separate bowls. I didn't have any horseradish, so I just put A1 in there. Next time, I'm going to saute a tablespoon of minced garlic in a half stick of butter for a minute and add some cracked pepper. That will be my third sauce. These were tasty sauces though!
This was so much fun. I can't wait to find that treasure trove of fondue recipes that is on the interweb. This fondue pot shall rest no more!
