Cast Iron Fondue


One of my favorite restaurants is the Melting Pot. Every course is served in a fondue pot, it's great for a dressy date night or a fun girls night out. This cast iron fondue was awesome and perfect if you do not have a fondue pot. The cast iron skillet will stay hot for a long time and will keep the cheese melted.

Recipe from Picture Perfect Meals.

Ingredients:
-2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
-1 large garlic clove, finely minced
-1/2 pounds Italian fontina, rind removed and small-diced*
-Handful of shredded Italian Blended cheese
-½ teaspoon dried thyme leaves
-cayenne pepper, optional for a little heat
-kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
-crusty French baguette, for dipping

*This was meant to serve four people, but there were only two of us. I cut the cheese down to half a pound, rather than 1-1/2 pounds the original blogger used. 

First add oil to the skillet and swirl it around the pan.
Add all other ingredients, except the baguette, to the skillet. 

Broil for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Season with salt, pepper and cayenne again if desired.

We loved this fondue! This is the perfect snack if you really need comfort food, the garlic got a little crispy in the pan and the cheese was incredibly flavorful with all of the seasoning. I think this served two really well, but you can use the original amount of cheese if you want to serve four.
