Cheese Fondue

We made this last night.  This is my favorite cheese fondue recipe (so far)!

2 tsp oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup whipping cream
8 oz cream cheese at room temp.
1 c. fresh Parmesan cheese
1.2 cup Gruyere cheese (1 1/2 oz.)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Saute onions with oil until soft, about 4 minutes.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and heat on low until melted.  Season with salt and pepper.

Dip:  variety of breads, steamed veggies, red potatoes (look below)

Red Potatoes for fondue:
1 lb red potatoes cut in 1" cubes
Boil potatoes in 6 cups of water with 1 tsp. salt until tender.

Then add 1 T. olive oil, 1 T. chopped parsley, and salt & pepper to taste.  You can prepare these a day ahead and then just warm up in oven for 10 min at 350.
