A family tradition on my in-laws side, is having cheese fondue on Christmas Day! At first I was reluctant because at the time I was not a big cheese fan. BUT I was quickly converted and now you can consider me one of the biggest cheese fans around.
The combination here of the Swiss and cheddar make for the most amazing meld.
Swiss by itself, well not so much but melt it with some sharp cheddar, butter, and oh….everything else you add, you can’t get much better.
This has become my favorite meals to eat on Christmas and trust me this is the day of plenty!!!!
Easy to serve for any occasion, as an appetizer or a meal your family and guest will be satisfied.
Cheers to family, traditions and cheese!
Cheese fondue made with Swiss and cheddar great for any occasion. Serve as an appetizer or meal. Dip in using vegetables, fruit, bread, crackers, or if you are like me use them all.
- 1 cube margine or butter
- 3/4 cup flour
- 4 cups milk
- 1 lb. Swiss cheese, shredded
- 1 lb. Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 teaspoon Worchestier sauce
- 2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt and pepper
In a large sauce pan blend margarine, flour and milk to make white sauce.
Once the white sauce is made add the Swiss and Cheddar cheese melted.
Add Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic and salt and pepper to taste right before you serve.
Keep warm over low heat or in a fondue platter. Great to serve with vegetables and Sourdough or French bread.
My review: This is my favorite holiday meal! Even now when I go to the Melting Pot – our local fondue place I only get chocolate because I just love this recipe too much and the comparing is just not fair!
Kid’s reviews: So anything with cheese my kids, well most of my kids LOVE! Madden who is our little mouse – literally loves a mouse diet cheese and bread and anything that crumbles and he eats like a mouse too!!! On which we are trying to break him of before the dating years come and yes, I know it will take us 10 more years!!! He put this recipe away!!! The only one who isn’t a fan is Aiden, my 10 year old who after a bad pizza incident with a local restaurant in tow (who shall remain nameless) is not into cheese.
