Cheese Fondue Recipe

*Please note that my favorite cheese fondue recipe includes white wine. To make it alchool free and child friendly, simply remove the wine from the ingredients and you still have a great tasting cheese fondue recipe.

  1. Use the garlic to rub the inside of the fondue pot.
  2. Turn the burner on and pour the lemon juice and wine in the fondue pot.
  3. Warm the lemon juice and wine in the fondue pot, do not allow to boil.
  4. Reduce heat slightly and add all the shredded cheese.
  5. Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.
  6. Add pepper to taste.
  7. As noted above, if your fondue cheese is too thick – add wine. If it’s too liquid – add cheese to get the texture you desire.
  8. Add your dippers and have fondue fun!
