Cheese Fondue

This cheese fondue doesn't require any fancy, expensive cheese & yet it tastes great!  My DH & I had this for New Year's Eve, along with a chocolate fondue.  I plan to make it again soon!  You may want to make this for a fun Valentine's Day meal!!

3/4 cup white wine
3 cups grated cheese (I used a Mexican blend)
2 T. flour
dash of garlic powder

Mix the cheese & flour together & set aside.

Heat the wine in fondue pot until it comes to a boil.  Turn down the heat until the wine comes to a simmer.

Add the cheese, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until it is fully melted.  Add the garlic powder.

Serve with roasted or raw veggies, such as cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms & asparagus.  Smoked turkey sausage is also good after it's been heated & of course, don't forget the bread cubes!!! We love the Artisan Bread found here

To roast veggies, coat them with a little olive oil, salt & pepper & roast the cut up cauliflower, carrots, broccoli for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees.  For asparagus & mushrooms, add during the last 10 minutes.
Yummy roasted veggies & sauteed  smoked turkey sausage

NOTE:  Any cheese fondue can be refrigerated & reheated.  I almost think it tastes even better after re-heating!!

  1. anything w/ cheese is a winner here!! Melted, shredded, cheese whiz, cheese stick, fondue, string cheese...well you get the picture!

  2. Thank you for this recipe, do you know this is something I have yet to experience, and I grew up in the 70's!
    Looks deeelish!

  3. I have been looking for a good and easy cheese fondue recipe - made a good chocolate one recently that was simple and delicious. Thanks so much for sharing this!! I will try it!

  4. Kitty, I'm sure I would love this! You have so many super recipes!

  5. I ate fondue in Switzerland, but have never made it, even though I lived through it "heyday". This sounds really good... especially with the sausage and roasted veggies! You should post the recipe for your yummy bread! Love you!

  6. Fondue is such fun! Our family tradition is to have fondue by the fire on New Year's Eve. We also have it at other times, but not often enough!

  7. Oh Fun! When I was growing up we always did Fondue on New Year's Eve too. It is a great way to pass a long evening.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    P.S. Love your blog. I'm following you now. :)

  8. The first year we were married we lived in Switzerland where fondue was king. We ate it once a week - always with either hot tea or wine. The Swiss said you couldn't eat fondue with anything cold because it would make the cheese harden in your stomach. That seemed silly then and still seems silly. Your recipe makes me think I need to have a fondue night for the hubs and me.

  9. I love fondue, Kitty. I have a fond memory of being skiing with my late husband in Maine and eating a late supper at a little inn and sharing fondue and a bottle of wine. Lovely memory. I love how food can do that. Thanks for sharing your recipe and for visiting Cottage and Creek. I'm your newest follower.

  10. Oh yum, I love cheese fondue! Thank you for stopping by and for your prayers. Have a lovely day.


  11. Love the hint of garlic powder in your Cheese fondue - must have tasted delish!Unfortunately cheese is something I've been asked to stay away from due to my migraine problems:( but then who cares:P One in a while does no harm,eh?:)

  12. Kitty, just popping over from Miz Helen's and I love your cheese and chocolate fondue recipes. What a blast from the past. Can't wait to try them. If you get a moment, would you like to link up to my "Thriving on Thursdays" Linky Party here in Australia? I know a lot of people would who would also love to see this recipe.
