Day 338 – Melting Pot’s Spinach Artichoke Cheese Fondue

{0 Comments}

I wanted to whip up a nice treat for us on New Year’s Eve. Since cheese and bread are basically my two favorite things, I decided to bust out the fondue pot.

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. vegetable broth
  • appx. 1-2 oz. fresh spinach, chopped
  • appx. 1-2 oz. artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 1/2 oz. Butterkäse cheese (I wasn’t able to find this, but she has a recipe for “fake” Butterkäse you can make instead.)
  • 2 1/2 oz. Fontina cheese
  • 1 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • a small amount of flour
  • dash Tabasco sauce

Directions:

1. Heat vegetable broth in fondue-type unit or similar cooking pot. When hot (do not bring to a boil) add spinach, artichoke hearts, and garlic and mix well.

2. Apparently, employees of the MP say you need to lightly flour the cheese before adding it in. Combine Butterkäse and Fontina and add a little bit at a time to spinach/artichoke mixture, stirring constantly until you reach your desired consistency. Stir in Parmesan cheese and Tabasco sauce. Serve with french bread pieces and/or lightly steamed vegetables.

This was so tasty! I just wish there was more of it. It didn’t make quite as much as I was expecting. If you are making this for more than 2 people, you’ll definitely want to double it. The flavors are wonderful though and it wasn’t difficult to make. It made the perfect NYE treat.
