Kitchen Tips
Fontina is a semi-hard cheese produced originally in the Alps of Italy and France. It is a creamy cheese that has a sharp, yet delicate piquant flavor. Substitute Gruyere, provolone, Gouda, Edam or smoked mozzarella for it, if desired.
Use 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves in place of the dried thyme.
