How to Get Rid of Leftovers from a Fondue Party

Wait, you didn't think we actually had any fondue left over, did you? You so silly! Cheese and chocolate don't stick around long with me around (and my friends).

But I definitely overdid it with the "dippers." There was tons of broccoli, cauliflower (orange cauliflower!), bread, and ham left after our fondue party. There was quite a bit of fruit and angel food cake left too, but that was simple: make another chocolate fondue the next day!

Actually, there was a bit of gruyere left over, since I bought enough for 2 batches, but one ended up being enough. I used it with the broccoli and cauliflower to make this soup. I was out of carrots, so doubled up the celery. Also, I used a smoked gruyere. It was very good--especially with the ham. In fact, we ended up chopping up our ham and putting it right in the soup. Yum!

For the leftover bread, I made my first bread pudding: Irish Bread Pudding with Caramel-Whiskey Sauce. A big hit! The sauce rules.
