Gouda fondue in a microwave.

Baby goudas, those compact cheese rounds available in most supermarkets, are ideally shaped for this made-in-the-microwave fondue appetizer. Fresh vegetables and herbs add color and flavor.
Petite Tomato and Basil Gouda Fondue
 1 small whole (7-oz.-size) gouda
 cheese
 2 small (about 4 oz. total) Roma-type
 tomatoes, cored and diced
 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh
 basil leaves
 1 small (8 oz.) baguette, sliced and
 toasted


Remove coating from gouda; carefully scoop out center of cheese, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Set shell aside. Coarsely chop scooped-out cheese into small pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl; mix in tomatoes and basil.

Cook, uncovered, in a microwave oven at half-power (50 percent) for 1 minute. Stir, then continue cooking at half-power, stirring every 20 seconds, until cheese is bubbling, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes longer. Set cheese shell on a plate; surround with baguette slices. Pour cheese mixture into shell, pushing into corners to fill shell completely. Serve hot to scoop onto toast; cut up warmed shell to eat. Makes 4 or 5 appetizer servings.
