Cheese Fondue

You guys – Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  So, I thought this week I would share one of my favorite at home Valentine’s Day meals.  Fondue!  If you’ve ever been to a fondue restaurant they start you off with a cheese fondue.  So this week this we are following suit and starting off with cheese fondue.

Cheese Fondue with Dippers

Who doesn’t love warm melty cheese with lots of dippers?  This cheese is simple and flavorful – made with two varieties of cheddar and a dash of worchestershire sauce. Simple and delicious and a perfect start for your special meal.

The Dippers

When it comes to the dippers – use your imagination!  I like to do crusty bread, green apples, carrots, broccoli, and other crisp veggies!  Pretzels and summer sausage are delicious too!

The Perfect Stay In Meal

Fondue is really the perfect appetizer for a romantic evening, or an evening with your family.  My husband and I avoid the crowds on v day, and always enjoy a quiet night at home.  Stay tuned for the main course – broth fondue with beef and shrimp.  And of course we will have chocolate fondue as the grand finale!
