Fondue adds fun to any entertainment plan. It’s versatile and very easy. Anything you like can serve as “dippers.” Try crackers and breads, or meats, seafood, vegetables and fruits. To show you how simple it really is, here’s is an early recipe creation showing my emerging Keep It Super Simple thinking back in the early 1970’s.
Fondue was very “in,” and this recipe was very easy. Both fondue and simplicity are back in vogue, so this vintage recipe, originally created by my KISS Kitchen, is perfect.
1970’s Cheese Fondue
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1 single serving can (6-oz) tomato juice
1 envelope dried onion soup mix
2 c shredded Swiss cheese
1 c shredded Cheddar cheese (mild or sharp)
1 c shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Heat and stir together all the ingredients until melted, thick, and stringy. Serve and keep warm in a fondue pot with large cubes of crusty French bread, whole mushroom caps, fresh broccoli florets, sweet red pepper sticks, and wedges of Granny Smith apples.
