This cheesy gluten free spinach and leek fondue is quick and easy to make for a get-together. The leeks caramelize, which add a whole new level of flavor to this cheese dip recipe.
This week is all about easy holiday entertaining. I feel like the holidays are so hectic and busy; it makes a huge difference to me to have appetizer recipes that are quick and easy to put together. It lessens my stress load, which leaves me a much happier person.
For our holiday party, I made this delicious creamy gluten free spinach and leek fondue. It is full of gruyere cheese, one of my favorites.
Do you often have friends who drop by to say hello during the holidays? We do and we cherish this quality time with our friends.
Having ingredients on hand to make appetizers helps keep me prepared for any occasion. I thrive on making delicious appetizers that everyone at the party can enjoy.
If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know I am all about easy recipes. This easy fondue recipe is no exception!
You can dip vegetables, or even this delicious gluten free baguette by Schar that I found at our local grocery store. Just bake it for 5-8 minutes and it gives you that amazing crispy outside, something that those who are gluten free often miss.
I also want to put an unsolicited plug for this fondue pot. Mine has lasted for years. My favorite feature is that I can adjust the temperature so I can use it for meats, cheese, or a creamy chocolate dessert fondue.
