Loaded Baked Potato Fondue: Recipe from the Melting Pot

Fondue seems to be a blog favorite, especially around the holidays. I had a reader request a recipe for the loaded baked potato fondue and I found one! Here is a link to the video of someone making the recipe if you would like to watch. The recipe is from NewsOn6, which is a news station in Oklahoma. Happy fonduing!

*You can use an electric fondue pot or a double boiler, which you can make by placing a mixing bowl (glass or metal) and a saucepan that the bowl will fit on top of.  The two should fit tightly together because you don’t want a gap between the bowl and the saucepan. To use the double boiler, add water to the sauce pan and bring it to a simmer, then place the bowl on top and fill it with whatever you intend to cook or melt. I have an electric fondue pot so that is the method I will be using. To read more about using a double boiler click here.

I had to guess on the measurements while watching the video, but it should be close.

Instructions:

Step 2:    Add the green goddess, smoked bacon, pepper, and garlic and wine seasoning to the broth. Stir until the ingredients are warm, just a few minutes.

Step 3:   Next in a separate bowl mix the cheeses and flour.

Step 4:   Finally, add the cheese and flour mixture a little at a time to the broth and stirring each time until the cheese is dissolved.
