With my family and friends, Christmas is definitely a time for indulgence and Christmas Eve (most often spent with our best friends) is one big feast of various delicious dishes.
I have a tiny crock pot that is perfect for cheese fondue and I found this recipe (and modified it) a number of years ago.
It’s still a favourite when we show up on Christmas Eve with a bottle of wine (or two) and all the makings.
Even when it’s just us and our friends we can finish the pot off.
If we’ve added others to the Christmas Eve mix, it’s best to get your bread chunk ready or you might miss out!
