Baked Fontina

Looking for a simple, cheese-filled holiday appetizer? Meet Baked Fontina, which is exactly what it sounds like: warm, bubbling cheese swirled with garlic and herbs, broiled in a rustic cast-iron pan. Have we convinced you yet?

The result is a baked fondue of cheesy goodness that you can scoop up with hunks of bread, toasted sliced bread, or even crackers or Wheat Thins. The garlic and herbs permeate throughout the cheese when it bakes and every bite has a blast of herby flavor. It’s heaven…melted cheese heaven.
