Gluten Free Pizza Fondue Recipe

So you're going to a Super Bowl party this weekend and you need to bring as a dish to pass...
SPH Gluten Free Pizza Fondue Recipe
1 jar spaghetti sauce (your choice of flavor and brand - I use Muir Glen Organic)
1 pound Italian sausage, well-browned and well-drained (your choice of mild or spicy)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup beef stock/broth (I use Pacific Organic brand)

Empty spaghetti sauce and cheese into a crockpot.  Add sausage and stock/broth and stir well to combine.  Allow to cook on high for 1-2 hours, or til cheese is melty and gooey.  Serve with gluten free bread sticks (you can make these with a GF bread mix), or garlic toasts (Against the Grain brand has gluten free baguettes that taste just as good as "regular" bread).

When you take GF dishes to parties, be sure to mark your dishes and serving spoons well.  Explain to your host/hostess your system and explain the dangers of cross-contamination.  You may feel like you are being a pest, but you have to look out for you.  Nobody else will do that job as well as you can.

Here's an example:  Our first Thanksgiving gluten free, I bought all new serving dishes and some serving spoons.  All my dishes were red, and the handles of my spoons were also red.  My pie server had a hole in the handle, through which I tied a red ribbon.  This made it easy for everyone to tell what was what.  After all, that red worked as an international symbol of "STOP!" for everyone at the party.

Odds are that the folks you are partying with are your friends and/or family.  Most people within this group probably know about your situation, and are willing to help you stay healthy.  Certainly any reasonable person would not intentionally want to hurt another!
