I just got back from the wilderness and all I could think about while I was out there was a creamy cheese fondue. I’ve combined the ever so popular Swiss/Gruyère with some parmesan and white wine, YUM!
I don’t even have a fondue pot, but I’m winging it today. Where there is warm and melted cheese served with little dippers, I am a happy camper. 😉
Swiss and Gruyère Fondue (Servings: 2-3)
- 1-1/2 cups Swiss (grated)
- 1-1/2 cups Gruyère (grated
- 1/8 cup Parmesan (grated)
- 2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
- 1/2 cup of white wine
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- sprinkle of fresh nutmeg
- sprinkle of cayenne to top
Toss the cheese and garlic together with the cornstarch.
In a small pot simmer the white wine. Add in the cheese, slowly stirring on medium-low heat until smooth and creamy. Next, add in the dry mustard and stir. Grate some fresh nutmeg over top.
Pour into a bowl or fondue pot and sprinkle just a touch of cayenne pepper — serve. 🙂
For dippers I heated up some fresh french bread wrapped in tin foil so it stayed nice and soft. Then I sliced the warm bread into cubes. I also chopped up some green apples.
Some other ideas…hard salami, pre-cooked ham and turkey cubed, baby carrots, celery, small pickles, the list goes on…
Enjoy your EASY gourmet fondue all the way from Switzerland!!
