Cheesy Fondue with Vegetables
April 20, 2018
Warm, versatile, and cheesy! Add this fondue to your next get-together menu to put your best (yummiest) foot forward.
Fondue is the best time to indulge with some high-quality cheese. Check out your grocer’s selection of melty cheeses to determine what’s best for your next party– I personally am partial to gruyere for the authentic Swiss taste! Fontina and gouda can both melt down nicely and add some depth to your flavor profile. Feel free to depart from the norm to find what combination is your favorite!
To Dip or Not to Dip
There are so many classic options to serve with fondue: a good crusty bread, some spicy salami, and a crisp bell pepper, for starters. But consider switching up your fondue dinners with some of these fun and dip-able options!
- Roasted heirloom potatoes
- Seafood, like shrimp or lobster (if you’re feeling extra fancy!)
- Multi-colored veg, like cauliflower or carrots
- Sliced pears or apples for a sweeter bite
- Dried fruit, like apricots and figs
- Kielbasa or beef jerky

My favorite fondue pot is the Cuisinart in brushed stainless steel, which you can get on Amazon. It has worked perfectly for my family, and is a great size for entertaining small groups, or as a complimentary part of a menu if you are serving a larger group of people. Fondue pots are a low-cost investment that will serve you for years to come!Print
