Pizza Fondue


I recently learned two new things about fondue.  The first is that the word comes from the french word fondre -to melt.  The second is a fun rule that we will have to institute for our next family fondue party: if you drop what is on the end of your fondue fork into the melting pot, you have to kiss someone at the table. 

I had lunch today with an old friend and when he heard that  I wrote yesterday about TV dinners, he was happy to share this delicious one.  Perhaps  you’ll want to make it Sunday night for the Canada /US hockey game.

Pizza Fondue

This is a very simple and delicious comfort food to enjoy while watching a movie or the Olympics. Serve with a side salad and a nice bottle of red wine. Totally to die for.


1 lb. Lean ground beef and/or Italian sausage

1 small onion

10 oz cheddar cheese (shredded/cubed)

1 ½ tsp garlic powder

1 tsp. oregano

1 ½ tsp fennel seed or Italian seasoning

Fresh cracked pepper

20 oz can of Meat or Spaghetti sauce

10 oz. mozzarella cheese (shredded/grated)

1 French baguette cut into 1” bite-size pieces.



Sauté the beef/sausage and onion until cooked and drain. Now transfer to an electric fondue pot. Add all seasonings, cheddar and sauce and stir well. Turn onto medium to heat everything up and melt the cheddar cheese. Once it’s all nicely warm and blended, add the mozza cheese and continue stirring occasionally until all bubbly and melty. Stick your bread cubes onto fondue fork, dip, twirl and enjoy.

    I must admit I fell asleep after the second period of the Can/Slovakia game thinking that Can had it in the bag. Not so. They better be on their toes-it’ll be quite a match!
