The big game is coming up quickly; do you know how you will spend your Super Bowl Sunday? If you are like us, it will include great friends and endless snacking. But who wants to spend all day in the kitchen? This year, make something your friends will love without the hassle. You actually want to watch the game, right? I am a huge fan of a simple, classic, one-pot recipe. Less mess, less clean up. We have a great recipe that combines two of our favorite things in this world: cheese and wine. Try it out – your friends will thank you:
Yield: 4-6 servings
Total time: 25 min
½ pound imported Swiss cheese, shredded
½ pound Gruyere cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cherry brandy
½ teaspoon dry mustard
And anything you'd like for dipping! My favorites are Granny Smith apples, crusty bread (think Sourdough or a French baguette), and roasted artichoke hearts.
1. In a small bowl, coat the cheese with cornstarch. Set aside. Rub the inside of the ceramic fondue pot with the garlic, and then discard.
2. Over medium heat, add the wine and lemon juice and bring to a simmer. Stir in the cheese gradually (so the cheese can melt, encouraging a smooth fondue). Once smooth, stir in the cherry brand, mustard, and nutmeg.
3. Serve with your favorite dipping foods.
And as an added bonus, you have the remaining white wine to enjoy during the game! If you have another beverage in mind however, save your wine for another time. Our new Rabbit Stainless Steel Wine Preserver will remove air from your wine bottle, preserving the taste for next time. But we wouldn't blame you for enjoying it right away :)
