La Fondue Super Bowl
The Super Bowl! This huge sporting event is also a real foodie bonanza, as well as a fun reason to get together during the cold month of February! You’ll love devouring our Super Bowl Fondue during the only football game you’ll watch all year, or any other night for that matter! The three delicious sauces in this recipe warrant its intermediate difficulty rating, but it’s still pretty simple to make, and almost as good with store-bought or simplified dips. So, what are you waiting for? Enjoy some Super Bowl bites, Fondussimo-style!

    • Arrange the dipping ingredients, veggies, meatballs and sauces on serving plates. Create delicious sliders with smoked meat, cheese curds and barbecue mayonnaise!

    A few tips

    • Make delicious bundles with thin slices of smoked meat and cheese curds. You can close them with a toothpick before putting them in your perforated basket!
    • If you’re taking advantage of the shortest month of the year to participate in the 28-day Sober Challenge, you should know that the broth for this fondue can be made without beer! Just replace it with the same amount of white grape juice or filtered apple juice and you’re good to go!
    • Chicken wings are one of the few foods we wouldn’t recommend dipping into a reinvented fondue, but they will have their place on the sidelines as a superstar side dish! Psst… Don’t hesitate to dip them in the delicious sauces suggested in the recipe!
    • You can precook the meatballs before your reinvented fondue party to speed up the eating game, or cook them directly in the Fondussimo!Check out this blog post to find out more about this pivotal question: To precook or not to precook?
