I think we have established that I love cheese. Well, this recipe is so good it would convert even the most cynical critic. It is a copy of the Melting Pot fondue but making it yourself saves lots of money (and you won’t even taste a difference). Depending on how hungry you are, and if you are eating other foods afterwords, this recipe will feed 1 or 2 people. I promise you will want more after it’s gone.
- 1/2 cup shredded fontina cheese (gruyere works fine too)
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1tsp flour (all purpose preferably)
- 1/2 cup white cooking wine
- 2 tsp minced garlic (more if you LOVE garlic)
- 1/2 cup chopped baby spinach
- 1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts
- Pinch of black pepper
- Combine cheeses in a bowl and sprinkle with flour. Toss evenly to coat and set aside.
- Pour cooking wine and garlic into a pot on medium high heat. When it starts to boil add the spinach and artichoke. Stir until spinach wilts.
- Add cheeses and stir until melted. Transfer to fondue pot or keep on low heat until ready to serve.
*helpful tips. If you boil the cooking wine too long it will evaporate. If you feel like you want your fondue thinner, add vegetable broth instead of more cooking wine. Cooking wine is very high in salt and a little goes a long way.
*french bread, raw broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and apples pair great with this fondue.
