How To Prepare Bread For Fondue

Did you know you can prepare bread for when you wish to fondue? You can! Now I will show you….
So first of all, I would like you to know this, my friend — what you will want to first do is to give that bread a quick bake in your oven. And 350 º F ought to be just perfect for what you want to go for — not too much hotter, and certainly not under that temperature. And even better, pre – heat it to that temp, for about 10 minutes or so, and then stick the bread in. Use mitts, of course… it can be hot when you are putting the bread in there, and the last thing that you want to do is burn a hand or finger, he he he heh.
Now, then, you will also want to take note of this —- be sure to loaf up, BEFORE pre – heating and sticking it in ( oops, I forget to mention that important step, he he he heh… or maybe I just wanted to spice things up this time around and see who is still reading, ha hah ) . Even slices, or evenly – sliced sort of ‘bread cubes’, are perfect for this. Cut nice and evenly.
Now when the bread is in the oven, be sure to let it be there for not a minute less than 15, and not a minute more than 20. So use a timer if you have to ( for me, a timer is perfect because I can get absent – minded about that sort of thing rather quickly, I will admit, with all the other things going on around me, he he he he heh ) . You will notice that this will toast that bread nice and dry, and leave sort of like a light, golden – brown crisp feel to it, at least on the edges. All in all, the goal here is to simply just starve every inch of that bread ( did you know you can starve food? He he he heh… my funny choice of words ) of its moisture, all in all. Deprive it of its fullest moisture, because a dry, hard bread is perfect for when you want to fondue.
This is all, of course, assuming that you are going to then later stuff the bread with that nice, hot cheese fondue. Perfect paradise. It’s like hot potatoes with fondue, but even better. There is just something about bread…. don’t know how to put it into words, but people seem to prefer it over potatoes, at least with cheesy fondue.
Wondering what kind of meal this is for, ideally? Most of the time, people make bread fondue for the Holidays. It is delicious and warm, especially, a perfect treat to the tummy.
