Creamy Gouda Fondue

Gouda steals the show in this fondue recipe perfect for fall gatherings.


  • 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
  • 1 cup basil leaves, torn
  • 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.
