Yeah, its amazing what can come out of the kitchen when I am out of my staple groceries. Here I am again, cleaning out the cupboards and the fridge. Easily serves 2 as a lunch, or 4 sides for dinner. Could use any cheese combination, I found this combo tasted amazingly like my favorite german cheese fondue.
