Awhile back I started looking up those random holidays that seem to happen everyday. I found out today was National Fondue Day so last night, my family made fondue! We usually use cheddar cheese for fondue, but I decided to switch it up. We made this swiss fondue and it turned out great. I think it is pretty safe to say that we will try making this again in the future!
Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of pictures for this recipe, however I will be adding a video to this post at some point in the next few days, once I get that edited!
- 8 oz. Swiss Cheese (Grated)
- 6 oz. Emmentaler Cheese (Grated)
- 1 Cup Wine (I used Chardonnay)
- 2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground White Pepper
- 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
- Veggies & Bread For Dipping
1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted add the nutmeg, pepper, garlic, and lemon juice. Stir continuously as you add the corn starch. This will thicken up the mixture a lot.
2. Carefully pour in the wine and stir until combined and let simmer for a few minutes. For the wine, I ended up using Chardonnay, I have seen on many other fondue recipes that a dry white wine works best for fondue.
3. Gradually add in the cheeses, about a handful at a time. Stir until the cheese has melted before adding in more. Once all the cheese has been added, continue to stir until smooth. If you don’t have Emmentaler cheese, I recommend Gruyère or Comte as a substitute if you want o use more than one cheese, you could also make this using only Swiss cheese.
4. Serve with cut up veggies, bread, or apples to dip into the fondue! Be careful though!
This is my new favorite cheese fondue recipe! The garlic powder and nutmeg really add to the flavor of this dish.
