Swiss and Cheddar Cheese Fondue is one of my all-time favorite, go-to recipes! I can’t believe I haven’t posted it before now! This recipe is one that we always make on New Years Eve, although to be completely honest, we make it lots of other times throughout the year too. We always make this when we invite friends over for dinner and everyone is amazed at how easy the recipe is to make because it is so yummy!

What kinds of things can you dip in cheese fondue?

I love the versatility of this recipe too – you can use any flavors of cheese you’d like and the number of dippers that you can use are endless! We love to dip French bread, ham, broccoli, green beans, apples and potatoes but there are plenty of other options – anything tastes better when dipped in cheese! Not only is cheese fondue fun to serve for company and parties, but it is a wonderful meal for kids! I have found that I can get my kids to eat things that they normally wouldn’t, as long as they can dip their food in a yummy cheese dip. It’s a great way to get kids (and adults) to eat more vegetables!

Do you have to have a fondue pot to make cheese fondue?

You can use a fondue pot, but you definitely don’t have to. I have an electric fondue pot that I love, but I’ve made this recipe in a saucepan dozens of times and it works just as well. If you are using a fondue pot, you want to make sure that you keep the heat down fairly low so you don’t scorch the cheese. I keep mine almost all the way down to low and everything melts very quickly.

What kinds of cheese work best in cheese fondue?

I usually use equal amounts of Cheddar and Swiss cheese in this recipe but any flavor of cheese works well!

SWISS & CHEDDAR CHEESE FONDUE

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I usually use mild or medium)
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Dippers for fondue (ham, french bread, apples, potatoes, veggies, etc)
  1. Melt the butter over low heat and then add the cornstarch, stirring until well combined – you can use a fondue pot or a saucepan on the stove – either method works great! If you have an electric fondue pot, turn the temperature slightly above warm as the temperature gets very hot if you go higher than this! 
  2. Mix the salt in well and then add the milk. Stir continually over medium-low heat until boiling. Continue to stir and boil the mixture for one minute.
  3. Turn the heat down slightly and then add the cheese.
  4. Mix just until the cheese is melted and serve with all of your favorite dippers!

    • Yes, you will want to cook the vegetables before dipping. I like to steam broccoli or green beans, and I usually roast the potatoes in the oven with a little bit of olive oil and seasoned salt.
