Yesterday we started with dessert fondue and today we’re going to take a look at fabulous cheese fondue!
Cheese fondue is the perfect, decadent treat. With a few simple ingredients, you end up with a fabulous cheese dipping sauce that is delicious on bread, vegetables and even meat if you like. Simple, easy and delicious!
Now let’s jump right in to some cheese fondue!
What You’ll Need:
Extra virgin olive oil
4 shallots, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 of a pint of heavy cream
1 3/4 cups of Colby cheese, shredded
1 3/4 cups of buttermilk cheese, shredded (Note: If you can’t find buttermilk cheese you can used Gouda or Monterrey Jack or even Swiss.)
1/3 cup of Parmesan, shredded (Note: The variety in the bottle will not work for this. You want to either shred it yourself, of get one of those containers out of the deli case that are shredded for you.)
4 ounces of goat cheese, crumbled
SautÃ© shallots in a little extra virgin olive oil with a pinch of sea salt and some freshly ground black pepper until tender:
Add remaining ingredients and stir until cheeses are mostly melted:
Add cheese mixture to a fondue pot and set to low heat.
Serve with vegetables and hunks of bread:
Notes: You can use most any cheese combo that you like as long as it is a meltable cheese. If you can’t find shallots you can substitute red onion instead.
