What could be better than savory smoked bacon and gooey cheese? Bacon and cheese fondue, of course. Not only does it pair well with pretty much anything—fruit, vegetables, pasta, bread—but it makes for a fun and easy upscale meal! Your guests will definitely be impressed when they find this at the table.
