This is a great, low-effort, casual starter, makes for a v sociable start to a meal. Served it as the starter/ nibble item for a winter girlie night in, went down a treat, v comforting and even the most picky eaters can't resist melted cheese and bread!

Great - I add a small amount of white wine into the top of it - delicious

I served this at my mum's birthday BBQ with some basil that I had growing in the garden, and bread sticks for dipping. It was really sociable, a bit like having a fondue.
