Creamy Gouda Fondue

Serves 4 | Time 45 min

Gouda steals the show in this fondue recipe perfect for fall gatherings. If you don't have a fondue pot, you can set up a double-boiler, melting the cheese in a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Take the bowl to the table to serve, then place over simmering water again if it starts to cool.

Special Diet: Vegetarian



12 ounces young gouda cheese, shredded

4 ounces aged gouda cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1 clove garlic, peeled and cut in half

1 cup dry white wine

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Pinch ground white pepper

Assorted dippers:

• Sliced Pink Lady and Honeycrisp apples

• Roasted Brussels sprouts

• Raw cauliflower pieces

• Roasted baby Yukon Gold potatoes

• Soft pretzel bites (found in the freezer section), toasted

• Cornichons

• Grapes



In a medium bowl, toss both goudas with the cornstarch and dry mustard until evenly coated. Set aside.

Rub the inside of a large saucepan with the cut side of the garlic clove. Over medium-high heat, bring wine, lemon juice and white pepper to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to low and stir in the gouda, one handful at a time.

Lower heat to medium-low and cook, stirring constantly in a figure-8 or zigzag motion, until cheese is melted and the mixture thickens slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.

Transfer to a fondue pot over a flame and serve with vegetables and pretzel bites for dipping.
