Can you make it ahead of time?
This white wine fondue needs to be served straight away so that the cheese is gooey and dip-able. You can keep it warm for a little while, but on a low heat so that the cheese doesn’t burn. Whenever possible, make it as close to serving as you can.
What’s the best cheese to use?
I used a mix of gouda and swiss for this fondue, but you can make it with other cheeses you like. Don’t use pre-grated cheeses, as these often have a coating that can be harder to melt. Either grate by hand or cut the cheese into small cubes.
What to serve with fondue
The hardest part when making this Easy White Wine Fondue is deciding what to use as dippers. There are so many delicious options. I chose to make super simple marbled rye crostini, but you could use apples, veggies, or even chips. Anything goes!
Recipe Notes and Tips
- Use a whisk to mix the ingredients together. It will combine more easily than if using a spoon.
- Don’t have the pot on too high of a heat or the cheese at the bottom can burn. Keep stirring so that it doesn’t catch.
- Once the cheese has all melted, you can add in more wine or more cheese to make it your preferred consistency.
So there you have it. Wine and cheese are a match made in heaven, and this SUPER EASY WHITE WINE FONDUE proves it beyond a reasonable doubt!
