Recipe for Cheddar Cheese Fondue

Cheddar Fondue

Fondue is great to serve for a special occasion.  It feels like a fun event to eat it!

If you’re familiar with the standard, delicious Swiss & Gruyere Fondue, you may want to try Cheddar Cheese Fondue for a nice change. If you’re a cheddar lover like me, you must try it! It’s easy to make. Here’s how…

Recipe for Cheddar Cheese Fondue


1 pound Cheddar Cheese
1 cup Champagne or Sparkling White Wine
1 Shallot
1 ½ T. Flour (or Cornstarch)

Food for Dipping
(Choose what you like)

Italian Bread (cut into cubes)
Sausage (sliced and cooked)
Apples (sliced)
Broccoli (cut into bite-sized pieces and steamed)

Or whatever else you think would go well with cheddar cheese.

1. Slice the shallot in half the long way so the most inner surface is showing. Rub a heavy saucepan with half of the shallot for flavoring. Rub the fondue pot with the other half.

2. Grate the cheese and mix with the flour (or cornstarch).

3. Pour the champagne into the saucepan over medium-low heat. Once bubbles start rising to the surface, add a handful of cheese. At this point you can raise the heat to medium. Stir constantly. If the mixture starts boiling, lower the flame.

Once the cheese melts, add another handful and so on until all the cheese has been added and is melted.

Add a dash or two of pepper. Mix well.

Quickly pour mixture into fondue pot and place over lit Sterno. Eat immediately! Spear bread, sausage or apple slices with fondue fork, occasionally scraping bottom of pan with bread to keep the bottom from burning. If the cheese starts bubbling, lower flame.
