New Years Appetizer: Cheese Fondue

With New Year’s Eve coming up, I thought I would share my favorite recipe for Fondue. A few years ago, while working with Wisconsin Cheese, I got to tour a few cheese-makers in Wisconsin. One of my favorite stops was touring Rose Kase where they served this amazing Cheese Fondue. What I love about this recipe is that the taste is beyond incredible, and there is no flour or cornstarch used. Enjoy this recipe on New Year’s Eve as an appetizer, and I assure you it will be a hit.

When I was asked to come up with a unique grilled cheese recipe for theĀ Wisconsin Milk and Marketing Board and their “Grilled Cheese Academy“, I thought, why not take my spring favorite salad and make it a grilled cheese. Caprese Grilled Cheese is the simple combination of tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I added avocado to mine. Feel free to use your favorite bread and any other ingredients you like.

Today, I am in Madison Wisconsin for a Wisconsin Cheese Media tour. I get to tour about 8 different cheesemakers around the area while tasting fabulous cheeses, attending a Fondue lunch as well as an award winning Cheese and Beer Pairing reception. I thought I would feature a simple cheese appetizer that my family loves in honor of the amazing Wisconsin Cheese. It’s so easy and wonderful for this time of year or as the holidays near (Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas), and my kids love it!

Also, I will also be featured on NBC 13 Daytime Alabama at 11:30 a.m on Thursday cooking a simple Slider recipes so check it out. I know-busy week.
