In addition to shrimp, I serve this cheesy fondue with French bread cubes. Every bite tastes like a little gourmet grilled cheese sandwich. —Roberta Rotelle, Honey Brook, Pennsylvania

"This was ok. Flavor was ok but found the heat of the fondue pot scorched the cheese (my pot doesn't have adjustable settings) and tomatoes fell to the bottom. I don't think I'll try again."
