Say Cheese!

Y’all, I dream about cheese. That’s not even a joke. I’ve seriously had dreams about building cheese and charcuterie boards and making cheese dips. And this wonderfully melty Three Cheese Fondue recipe will definitely make an appearance at some point. It’s straight up dreamy. A mix of Swiss, Gruyère and Gouda cheeses make this mild and nutty dip exceptionally creamy and rich. It’s so easy, too! You just need a little patience for whisking the melting cheese so it doesn’t burn. But oh my gosh, it’s so worth the wait!

  • mini sweet peppers
  • lightly toasted french baguette cubes
  • lightly toasted pumpernickel bread cubes
  • salame stick, cut into cubes
  • boiled baby potatoes

  • al dente cooked cheese tortellini
  • apples

How to Make Three Cheese Fondue

First, put the cheeses and flour in a large bowl or baggie. Stir or shake until the cheese is coated with the flour.

Then add the olive oil and garlic to a fondue pot or heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and lemon juice, and when it just starts to simmer turn the heat down to low.

Gradually add the cheese mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly with a whisk until the cheese is melted. Stir in the brandy and nutmeg.

Keep warm over low heat. If prepared in a saucepan, pour into a fondue pot or slow cooker to keep warm over low heat while serving.

Remember!

  • Fondue must be served over heat to maintain its smooth and creamy texture. Don’t overcook the fondue or it will get clumpy.
  • If the fondue starts to thicken, stir in a tablespoon of white wine at a time until dipping consistency.
  • Cheese fondue can be made a day in advance and kept in the refrigerator. Reheat over low heat, adding additional white wine as needed to thin the fondue and reach the dipping consistency.
