Last night, the kids and I huddled around the Wii and played a minigame that involved forking pieces of bread as they surfaced in the fondue cheese. The youngest asked what a fondue was. So, in the interest of burning their little mouths on the deliciousness that is fondue, I thought I’d concoct some this weekend and test their little patiences as they waited for the meat to cook.
Then I thought of how not to make this a fatty debauchery of goopy messes of cheese and the oil that somehow seeps into the curtains for months if not years. Of course, finishing up the meal with the standard chocolate fare would make this meal a bad alternative to McDonald’s.
I’m not sure where to cut the calorie corners to make this work as I’m not so kitchen savvy. So is there a way to make a tasty and kid-friendly fondue that is also healthy(ish)?
