Egg and Cheese Baked Fondue

10 Jun

First of all, don’t ask me why this is called a “fondue”. It’s got cheese and bread in it, so I guess that’s why, but I don’t really think it qualifies. But either way, it’s darn delicious.

I responded to his excited email with “I guess it’s chorizo for dinner tonight?” The Husband replied that he always thought of chorizo as a breakfast item, not a dinner item. Seeing a challenge, I quickly found an online recipe that sounded both delicious and dinnerish. And here it is, with a few improvements. Continue reading
