awesome fondue! came together super easy and had great flavor. I actually skipped the potatoes this time because I was looking for just a good fondue recipe to serve with chunks of French bread, lil' smokies, and cherry tomatoes. It worked really well for just that!
We roasted fingerling potatoes, toasted up some old buns, and cubed up apples - a very nice treat on New Year's Day
Yum, yum, yum... This cheese sauce is sooooo good. We also dipped bread cubes and lightly steamed broccoli and cauliflower into the cheese sauce. It was wonderful! I took the suggestions of other reviews and roasted the potatoes so they would have a tougher skin and not fall apart on the fondue fork. Everyone loved this fondue. This is definitely going into my recipe box! Thanks so much for sharing.
