Looking for a fun family night in? This Melting Pot Cheese Fondue Recipe is really easy to make, and a Fun Frugal Family Activity. Well, relatively frugal. The Gruyere cheese is a bit spendy (I found it for $12/lb. at Sam’s Club) but overall, this is both a meal and a family activity for less than $20. That’s considerably less than taking the family out to eat just about any restaurant!
Melting Pot Cheese Fondue Recipe
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 C. dry white wine
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 C. Swiss cheese, shredded
2 C. Gruyere cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, simmer the garlic, wine, and lemon juice. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the cheeses, and blend well until melted. Add mustard and nutmeg. Keep warm over Sterno with a fondue pot.
Dip assorted breads, meats, and veggies in the cheese. We diced French bread, salami, and fresh mushrooms to eat with our fondue.
