Makes: Serves lots.
1 lb. (ish) Fontina cheese, rind removed and diced

4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup good-quality olive oil

1Preheat the broiler. Distribute the cubes of cheese evenly in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet, or in two smaller ones. Scatter with garlic, thyme, and rosemary and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place the pan under the broiler for 5-6 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling and starts to brown.
