Bread Pot Fondue Video Recipe



Bread Pot Fondue Video Transcript

Hi, Kristy in the Rada kitchen, and today I’m making a recipe out of our cream cheese cookbook. It’s called Bread Pot Fondue. It’s great for a Super Bowl party, it’s a fun and unique way to serve a hot dig.

You’ll need one large loaf of unsliced French bread. Take our Bread Knife here and cut off just the top like that. Now we’re going to go in and hollow this out to about a half inch from the edge. So with the Serrated Bread Knife we’re going to try to make 1 inch slices. You’ll want to save this bread because that’s what you’re going to use to dip, and of course you want to save the top, too. So, any way you can get them out, you don’t have to be perfect. You want to get it hollowed out because you’re going to use it to bake your fondue, and you’re also going to serve it in here. No messy plates.

These serrated bread knives are perfect to cut bread, these little teeth do all the work for you, that way it doesn’t smash the bread as you cut. So I’m going to do an experiment. I’m going to use this Graprefruit Knife, as it’s serrated on both sides, and just carve this right out.

So I’ve carved all the bread out of this crust. And I’ve saved the big pieces. We’re going to bake those up and use them to dip. Now we’re ready to make the filling.

For the filling we need 1 cup of diced, cooked ham. I wanted to show you how handy this Rada Cook’s Knife is. It’s so sharp, you can cut that ham with one slice. I am going to cut this small because you’ll be dipping bread into this. You also need a half a cup of green onion. Again, same knife. It’s a versatile knife, you can cut a lot of things with it, and this green onion adds nice color to that fondue. I even like to put some of the stems in there.

In a large bowl, combine 2 shredded cheddar cheese, a cup and a half sour cream, and 2 3 oz. packages of softened cream cheese. Stir that together. Now we’re going to stir in our ham and our green onions. 1 small can of green chilies, chopped. And a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Mix that really well.

Now, in your shell, we’re going to spoon the filling in there. You’ll need a cookie sheet and to have your oven preheated to 350 degrees. You just want to stuff it into the ends.

Now we’re going to wrap our bread pot in foil. We’re going to do it twice. You want to put this on a cookie sheet. You’re going to put in the oven for an hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

So now that you have these pieces of bread that you cut out to make the shell we’re going to put 2 tablespoons of vegetable or olive oil and a tablespoon of melted butter in there. Stir it together. And we’re going to put that on a cookie sheet and bake it for 10 to 15 minutes at 350. So I’m going to wait until it gets to be about 10 minutes from the bread being done.

I just took our Bread Pot Fondue out of the oven and toasted the bread pieces to dip. You can use celery or crackers, too. You’ll want to give the dip a stir. That’s just 1 of the 101 recipes in our Cream Cheese cookbook.
