Retro Baked Cheese Fondue

From Hot Off the Griddle #38, April 1995.

"This is a bit passé but so easy and delicious - if you can have the ingredients, or are clever with substitutions - that it is the ultimate lazy-day comfort food. Serve it with a healthy salad to take a bit of the edge off your food-guilt." - Marcia

  • butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup shredded or slivered cheddar cheese
