Kids' Favorite Fondue Recipe (Slow Cooker)

Kids' Favorite Fondue Recipe (Slow Cooker)

Thanks to my dear friend, Marilyn Linton, writer, editor and volunteer extraordinaire, for this oh-so-easy “fondue.” Creamy and delicious, it is a great hit with adults as well as kids. Give everyone their own fondue fork and serve with thick slices of French baguette, quartered, celery sticks or slices of green pepper.

  • Small (maximum 312 quart) slow cooker
  • Blender or food processor
  • Fondue forks

Serves 6

1          can (28 oz/796 mL) tomatoes with juice   (see Tip) 

1 tsp    dried oregano         5 mL

1 tsp    salt                        5 mL

            Freshly ground black pepper        

3 cups  shredded Cheddar cheese         750 mL

            Sliced baguette

            Celery sticks

            Sliced green pepper

1.  In a blender or food processor, process tomatoes until relatively smooth. Transfer to slow cooker stoneware. Add oregano, salt, and pepper to taste, and cook on High for 1 hour, until tomatoes are bubbly.

2.  Add cheese to slow cooker in handfuls, stirring to combine after each addition. Reduce heat to Low and serve, or cover and keep on Low until ready to serve. Using fondue forks, dip bread or vegetables into fondue.

 Vegetarian Friendly

Tip If you’re in a hurry, bring the tomatoes to a boil on top of the stove after they have been processed. Then transfer to the slow cooker. Reduce the cooking time in Step 1.
