Accompaniments To Cheese Fondue

  • Yield: About 4 servings


  • 1/2 pound new or small red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • 1 bunch baby carrots, peeled
  • 3 ripe plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1 medium-size yellow onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • One 12-inch-long loaf French bread, cut into bite-size cubes
  • Wooden skewers or fondue forks


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, and onion with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Put the vegetables on the prepared baking sheets. Roast the vegetables until golden brown and very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
