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.
Made this for our new grandson's, Max, Meet and Greet. Served with baby potatoes from Trader Joes that I tossed with a little olive oil and kosher salt and roasted until done, and cubes of French baguette. OMG!!!!! This was the star of the party! I am not a big cheese person, but I could eat this with just about any other veggie, maybe cubes of ham, maybe with a big piece of cardboard? Seriously, this is THAT good! I did have to thin mine down a little more with a little milk, as it was verrrry thick. Thanks, Mimi, for an awesome taste experience! If I could give you 20 stars, I would!

Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
