Cheese Fondue

We have enjoyed cheese fondue with our Swiss friends on many occasions...and find it is a wonderful camping dish or a treat to enjoy with friends around the table on a winter evening. This is a recipe that came from a 'Taste of Home' collection at one time. Make a meal of it by dipping raw vegetable pieces and cooked chicken strips as well as the usual cubes of bread.

  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 loaf of fresh French bread, cubed
  1. Rub inside of large saucepan with the clove of garlic.
  2. Bring the apple juice to a boil over medium heat...then reduce to low heat.
  3. Toss the cheeses with the cornstarch, pepper and nutmeg...stir into the juice.
  4. Cook and stir constantly for 3-4 minutes...or until cheese is melted.
  5. Transfer to a fondue pot to keep warm.
  6. Serve with cubed bread for dipping.

  5. Oh, what a wonderful variation...using the apple juice. I am sure it tastes wonderful!Thnaks for posting this recipe~Ellie

  6. That cheese sauce looks all I need is a fondue set.

  7. Wondering if it would zing up with white wine instead of apple juice? My mom used to buy a packaged fondue mix and that is my flavor standard. I haven't tried a home made version before, so yours will be up for a try. I'll let you know how it goes! (and of course we'll be playing the fondue game too...)

  8. I was looking for something new for my fondue pot and here it is! I can't wait to put out for New Year's eve.
