This recipe is a great time saver! Start with store-bought cheese fondue (sold in the deli section), then add a homey touch with ingredients such as fresh rosemary, spicy peppers or pesto.
Sprinkle It Up
When fondue is hot, stir in a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg. Or add a sprinkle of dried sage leaves.
While cheese is melting, stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes and 2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped black olives.
When fondue is hot, stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) pesto.
When fondue is hot, stir in 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely diced jalapeño and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) chipotle Tabasco or regular Tabasco, or a dollop of hot garlic-chili sauce.
While cheese is melting, stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) dry sherry.
