Skillet Fontina Fondue

Yields1 Serving

Serve with crusty bread or baguette and apple slices for dipping. Adapted from Barefoot Contessa.

 1 lb. (ish) Fontina cheese, rind removed and diced
 1/2 lb. (ish) brie or other meltable cheese, rind removed and diced (optional)
 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
 sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

Preheat 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.


Serve immediately, with crusty bread for dipping.
