Fast and easy fondue tastes better than the stuff from the leading fondue chain and is only a fraction of the cost. Serve with sourdough bread cubes or Granny Smith or Honeycrisp apple slices.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour enough water into a large pot to be a few inches deep. Set a large stainless steel bowl atop the pot to make a double-boiler. Put garlic cloves into the bowl and turn heat below double-boiler to medium; cook until the garlic is fragrant and warm, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Pour wine into the bowl; cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove garlic from wine and discard.

  • Mix Gruyere cheese, Cheddar cheese, and flour in a bowl; gradually add to the wine while stirring continually. Cook and stir the mixture until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

This can be made in a fondue pot rather than a double-boiler if you have one handy.

I found the gruyere too rich, too intense. It was overpowering. I also had trouble with clumping. Will try another recipe next time. Read More

This was by far the most simple and quick-to-make fondue I've had. The white wine adds a lot of accent to the dish and is a welcome addition. I did add some black pepper cayenne and salt to taste but it was fantastic. Definitely my go-to recipe for how quick easy and tasty it is Read More

My husband loved this but too "swissy" for the rest of the family:) I cooked the wine a bit longer to mellow out the flavor which worked well. Read More
