Swiss Fondue Bread

"This is great if you like the taste of fondue, but don't have a fondue pot! Very tasty appetizer. If you want to give this some more zing, just add about 1/8 t. of your favorite dried spice (dill, basil, oregano, cayenne, garlic, etc.) to the cheese mixture."

    This was delicious and truly had a fondue taste! I added a bit of garlic powder and pepper as well. Next time I might reduce the mayo a bit as I'm not the biggest fan. Thanks!

    I had a large sourdough boule, so I decided to cut it in a crosshatch pattern, then stuff the cheese between the cubes and pour the sauce over the whole thing, letting it soak down into the crevices. I really enjoyed the flavor of the white wine and thought it was a nice substitute for fondue. Everyone at the dinner party I took it to agreed!

    I'm eating this as I'm writing the review, and I just love it! I added a bit more cheese, because I'm a cheese lover, but I have to say that this is especially good! I don't know about Italian bread, but it works wonderfully on a French baguette!


I didn't start cooking until my early 20's, even though I come from a family of accomplished and admired home cooks. While I grew up watching my Italian grandmother in the kitchen, I remained uninterested in trying anything on my own. As a young lady, I was known for being particularly ignorant in the kitchen, with no idea how to even make a hot dog! All this changed, however, when I got engaged. I realized it was time to let my inherent talents out of the bag. At the time, the New York Times had a weekly column called The 60-Minute Gourmet by Pierre Franey. Each week, I would follow these recipes diligently, and taught myself to cook that way. From there, I began to read cookbooks and consult with relatives on family recipes. At my ripe old age now, I feel I know enough to put together a very pleasing meal and have become accomplished in my own right. Having an Irish father and an Italian mother, I'm glad I inherited the cooking gene (and the drinking one too!). One thing I have learned is that simpler is always better! I always believe cooking fills a need to nurture and show love. After being widowed fairly young and living alone with my dog and cats, I stopped cooking for awhile, since I really had no one to cook for. I made care packages for my grown son occasionally, and like to cook weekly for my boyfriend, so I feel like I am truly back in the saddle!!
