Self-Serve Cheese Fondue
  The word Fondue comes from the French verb Fondre, meaning "to melt". Using the Gourmet d'Expert® Electric Skillet will let you prepare everything in advance, and let guests serve themselves while you enjoy the fondue yourself!

Ingredients (serves 3-4):

  • 1 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 8 oz. Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz. Emmentaler cheese, shredded
  • 1 garlic clove, halved crosswise
  • 1 cup dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, etc.)

Suggested Dippables:

  • French bread, pumpernickel bread, tortilla chips
  • Blanched vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, asparagus)
  • Raw vegetables (bell peppers)

*This recipe is ideal in the Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet (EP-PBC10). It may be made in the larger EP-RAC50 model, but you may need to double the ingredients.

1

Cut the dippables into bite-size pieces, and arrange on a platter.

2

Place the cheese in a container and coat with flour.

3

Rub the surface of the pan with the garlic clove and discard. Turn the Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet to 280°F, add the wine and bring to a gentle simmer (do not boil).

4

Turn the control lever to Keep Warm and add the cheese a handful at a time, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Cook and stir until the cheese is melted and creamy.

5

Place the dippables platter near the Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet along with wooden skewers.

6

Spear the dippables with the skewers, and dip in the cheese to enjoy.

7

If the fondue becomes too thick, add wine 1 Tbsp. at a time. If it becomes thin, add more cheese.
