Pizza Fondue

Pizza Fondue

Serves 4.

This recipe comes from my mom, and holds a lot of warm memories. Growing up, my family would typically go away on a ski weekend or two each winter. After a long, cold day of skiing, we'd head back to the condo, take hot showers, and pull on warm sweats. One meal that was traditionally enjoyed at each of these get-a-ways was pizza fondue. It's an easy, rustic meal, and a definite kid-pleaser.

1/4 lb. ground beef
1 T. butter
1/2 onion, chopped
14-oz. can pizza sauce
1/2 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. shredded cheddar
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
1/2 t. fennel seed
1/2 t. dried oregano
dash garlic powder
1 big loaf french bread, ripped into chunks.

Brown onion and beef in melted butter over meduim-high heat. Drain fat.
Add remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat until cheese is melted.
Serve with bread chunks.
