3 T butter
4 T flour
1/2 tsp paprika
2 1/2 cups milk
12 oz shredded cheese ( I used Irish Cheddar, I sometimes use half cheddar, half swiss)
Juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper, to taste
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add flour and paprika, cook a minute. Gradually add milk, whisking in completely. Add cheese, then stir in lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Whisk in more milk if it’s thicker than you want. Serve in fondue pot.
