New Potatoes with Three-Cheese Fondue

New Potatoes with Three-Cheese Fondue

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whipping cream

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (about 2 ounces)
1/2 cup (packed) grated Gruyere Cheese (about 1 1/2 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 pound unpeeled large red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
6 cups water

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Heat oil in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; sauté until soft, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add cream, cream cheese, Parmesan, and Gruyère. Whisk until smooth, about 3 minutes. Stir in nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Combine potatoes, 6 cups water and salt in large saucepan. Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook until potatoes are just tender when pierced with skewer, about 6 minutes. Drain. Transfer potatoes to bowl. Add olive oil and parsley; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Fondue and potatoes can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover separately and refrigerate. Whisk fondue 5 minutes over medium heat until melted and smooth. Reheat potatoes in 350°F oven 10 minutes.)

Place potatoes on platter. Spear each with skewer. Serve with warm fondue.
